Highwire Improv has officially launched classes! After lots of hard work by our head of education and curriculum team and an extensive venue search, it’s time! We have a wide variety of offerings whether you want to start your improv journey with a multi-week class, level up your skills with special workshops or just take a free Intro to Improv workshop (courtesy of a Maryland State Arts Council grant). We also have regular jams which provide a low-pressure, supportive environment to play and meet new friends.
Multi-Week Classes and Guest Workshops
All of Highwire Improv’s classes and workshops have a no-application scholarship option for at least 20% of spaces – just select that option when checking out on Eventbrite!
Thanks to a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council (www.msac.org), we will offer FREE Intro to Improv workshops across the city throughout 2024. Check back often as we add more events!
Regular Free Jams
As with every program at Highwire Improv, we’ve tried to take a fresh approach to improv classes through the lens of our core values. A few things we’re really excited about:
- Offering in-person and online classes consistently
- Using co-teachers for fundamentals / introductory classes
- Building inclusion and anti-oppression training into our instructor development program
- Hosting classes all over the Baltimore region to promote easier access
- No-application scholarships for all classes
- Open-source curriculum, along with direct feedback loops for the material
- Anonymous issue reporting through Suggestion Ox
