$59 for an 8 Week Beginners’ Improv or Sketch Course (Up to $200 Value)

During level-one improv classes, students learn the basics of long-form improv—a form that uses common themes to link collections of scenes—through getting onstage right from the first class. Sketch classes explore the nuances of scripted performances. Check the calendar for available class times. Students receive free admission to shows during the duration of their session.

The New Movement

Dubbed a “powerhouse of comedy” by the Austin Chronicle, The New Movement unleashes a dizzying number of comedy shows that belie the institution’s young age. Founded in 2009 by improvisers Chris Trew and Tami Nelson, the theater and conservatory has already established itself in two cities, training fledgling performers in the art of the extemporaneous by inspiring them to take comedic risks on stage, whether it’s connecting emotionally with a character or performing actual surgery. Whether or not the performers are costumed or bearing props, they aim to create a fully realized world on stage through grounded situations and elegant but always creative transitions between scenes.

Customer Reviews

Great time! It was my boyfriend's bday and we had a blast. He went on stage and his friend who came along is very interested in training with the new movement group now. Amazing show and we can wait to go again!
