"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. During the pandemic classes are on hiatus. We will resume when it seems safe to do so, at this moment likely May. We are still responding to email inquires. 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 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."
