March 4 and 5 mark the beginning of the next round of classes in Crawlspace Theatre Productions’ Improv Training Program. The theatre company is ready to jump back into teaching the art of spontaneous theatre making. The program offers four levels of improv classes that help people develop the ability to create improvised theatre. Reasons for taking the class range from an interest in comedy to a desire to develop communication skills. Classes are held at the Crawlspace Theatre Training Center, in First Baptist Church. No previous experience is necessary to sign up for Level 1 classes. Each level of classes meets for three hours, once a week for six weeks. Level 1 is offered on Sunday at 4pm and Monday at 6:30pm. Here’s what some of the training program students are saying about their experience: “It was awesome. I’d recommend it to anyone.” “It was a very non-judgmental environment. I recommend it because it was a lot of fun and very useful for everyday life.” “I really enjoyed being pushed, in a good way, out of my comfort zone.” “I thought the curriculum was well thought out. At the right level for beginners. Not too difficult or too easy.” Improv is widely celebrated for its unique way of combining play, support, and fearless expression. Participants in the Training Program will gradually learn the techniques that it takes to make great improv. Tara Sytsma, Training Program Director and Level 1 Instructor, brings her 16+ years of improv, theatre, and education experience to the creation of the classes. Tara Sytsma says, “Improv strengthens confidence, reduces the fear of failure, opens social circles, improves mental agility, and gives you new perspective. Plus, it’s the best way to discover if improv is your thing.” Class sizes are limited to 15 participants, and are for individuals age 18 and older. All participants start with Level 1. You don’t have to go to the big city to get great improv instruction. We’ve got it right here in Kalamazoo. It’s a great way to invest in your happiness. Crawlspace Theatre Productions is taking a step to get more people in Southwest Michigan involved in improv comedy. Their Improv Training Program is the only one of its kind in the area, providing four levels of improv instruction.
