Voices off! Workshop is taught in ASL.
Washington Improv Theater is dedicated to sharing the ideas and spirit of improv with all of DC. This free two hour introductory Improv For All workshop is targeted to participants who sign and will be completely taught in American Sign Language.
This particular class is designed to help introduce the art form in a comfortable, low-stress environment through using games and exercises based on emotion and physicality.
Our enthusiastic and friendly instructors work to make sure everyone is able to participate in a playful and trusting atmosphere.
Whether you are thinking about signing up for one of our eight-week courses, interested in exploring the ideas of improv, or just looking for one night of silly, get-out-of-your-head play, our Improv For All workshops are accessible to anyone and everyone.*
You don’t need theater experience. You don’t need to be a “funny person.” Just come in ready to have a good time.
Improv is an amazing way to help people connect with each other and have a reignite their sense of play. And we think Washington needs that pretty seriously. So join in on the fun – we offer free Improv For All workshops every month of the year! These workshops are free but registration is required. They tend to fully enroll.
