Our Classes & Workshops

Calendar

The calendar below lists all classes and workshops taking place at the Birmingham Improv Theatre.

Please note:

1. Each class occurrence appears on the calendar.  You must register and attend the first in a series of classes. The series is indicated by the color key for that class. 

2. If you must be absent for a specific class day and another series of the same class (i.e., Intro to Improv) is taking place concurrently, you can substitute with the same class from the different series.  For example, if the Intro to Improvisation is being offered on both Tuesday night and Saturday mornings and you must miss the third class on Tuesday, you can make-up the absence by attending the third Saturday morning class.

3. The calendar below is a reference to classes or workshops being offered.  At this time, you cannot register directly from the calendar, you must use the REGISTER NOW button on this page to register and submit payment.

4.  There is a 30-minute General Orientation that students must attend prior to the beginning of their classes.  During this orientation we will review the various policies and processes that we ask students to adhere to for the best educational experience of all students attending our classes and workshops.
