"The creativity of people who can improvise is key. I always look first for people who can improvise. Bill is an incredible improv teacher and I highly recommend him."
- Lisa Mionie
Thanks for visiting Actors Improv Studio!
UPDATE ON IN PERSON CLASSES Sept. 2021
We are not yet holding in person classes due to L.A. County Dept. of Health and NoHo Arts District guideline restrictions, which we support fully. We will revisit the end of each month and update at that time.
We still offer an improv class online as creativity can happen anywhere. Email us for details about improv online
As always, stay safe and practice creativity!
Casting Directors and Agents want people who can improvise. Why? People who can improvise are more open, creative, relaxed and spontaneous. At Actors Improv Studio, we help actors learn to improvise and improvisers learn to act!
Of course you could spend a lot of money to attend one of the big named
"Improv Mills" that use students to feed the machine, and put that on your resume. But if you really want to learn to improvise, to learn skills to be able to improvise at an audition, then you need to train with someone who cares about you learning.
A.I.S. was founded by Second City Chicago alum Bill Applebaum. Bill, a member of the board of the SAG/AFTRA National Conservatory, uses techniques he learned directly from those who started the modern improv movement. He helps people access their unique creativity.
"Improv is an important skill for every actor to have. Bill can help anyone become an improviser."
