Improv is for Everyone!

IT’S EASIER THAN EVER TO TAKE YOUR FIRST IMPROV CLASS

Thousands of unique individuals and organizations have become more open, happy and productive through our improv education programs. We’ve seen professors, designers, scientists, engineers, artists, police officers, city government staff and so many more light up during their first class.

Most can see how improv helps make you more confident and comfortable on stage but many are surprised to find how the skills learned in improv class support them in becoming better listeners, leaders, collaborators and communicators who are willing to be more honest with others and themselves.

In 2018, we introduced more than 2700 people to the deep impact and joy of improvisation and we want to ensure that improv is accessible to everyone. So, we are excited to announce new strategies for breaking down barriers that might be holding you back from taking the plunge.

THE IMPROV INCUBATOR SCHOLARSHIP

The Making-Box is committed to building community through comedy. We are determined to create an inclusive and supportive place for improvisers from all walks of life. It is vital that our stages and classrooms are accessible to everyone so we have created the Improv Incubator Scholarship. Each term (starting this May and continuing forever!) we will hold one spot in each of our Level One classes for a scholarship applicant.

All applications will be accepted via online application, phone application or printed application dropped off at the venue. To arrange for a phone call or printable application please connect with our Improv Incubator Director, Hayley (hayley@themakingbox.ca) or by giving us a call at 1 (800) 930-9892 ex. 1.

THE STUDENT BURSARY

We never want your finances to stand in the way of continuing your improv education. The Student Bursary is a community-funded program that supports our Improv Incubator students continuing their improv journey beyond Level One. Each term, The Making-Box Directors review applicants for the fund and determine how donations will be allocated. Donations made by a community supporter will be matched by The Making-Box so together we can help as many folks as possible experience the benefits of improvisation.

ALTERNATIVE PAYMENT PLANS
