We've been going thought the NIC archives and have noticed some great statistics. In the past year we have taught 113 Nashville students improv during our classes and workshops. (Not counting corporate and private events which would put it well over 200) In ONE YEAR.
Our students are a range from beginner-never-been-on-stage to seasoned professionals who ended up auditioning for us and being accepted (Andy, Jesse B, Chris, J-Dubs, Adrienne!)
Out of those students who sign up for full time classes:
as of November 2nd) 48.21%
of them continue training with us! 48%!!!
One of our goals is to provide provide professional and regular opportunities to learn how to perform and apply improv without having to travel to Chicago or LA to do so, and are taught by trained instructors who perform and teach regularly.
Nashville, we're excited to be on the cutting edge of theater and we think the numbers speak for themselves.Sign up and take a class today! Our next round starts Tuesday November 6th!

Just when we thought we were finally recovered from the amazingness that was the last two shows we find that it's showtime again!
Our shows keep getting bigger and better and tougher to top. Can we top the story of how Corey & Desiree were brought together in college giving CANDY. to. CHILDREN? Thorny & Ryan discovering the perils of busking in Nashville? Sarah going home with the sexy La Chupacabra in the Dating Game? Michael almost breaking his leg while sliding across the stage in World's Worst?
We sure hope so. (Okay, we know we will. Why? Because every time it's different and we're adding EVEN MORE NEW GAMES.)
This Saturday, 8pm. 1008 Charlotte Ave.
