PHIT Kids & Teens Improv Classes at Philly Improv Theatre

Our improv curriculum is designed to delight and challenge each student at a developmentally appropriate level, allowing them to feel comfortable and accomplished as they learn the art of improvisation.

PHIT Kids & Teens would love to offer daytime improv classes that might better fit into the schedule of homeschoolers and their children.

All of our K-12 classes are staffed with one lead teacher and an assistant and meet for 1.5 hours. We must have a minimum of 8 students for a class to run.

WHERE: PHIT Comedy, The Adrienne Theater, 2030 Sansom St., Philadelphia, PA 19103
