Classes

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!

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
