Teen Classes

We have classes for Teens! Groundlings improv training is available for teenagers ages 11–18, and introduces teens to our unique style. Each course includes 5 classes and culminate in a show on our student stage.  

Teen Series Workshops

This Improv Workshop for Teens ages 11-14 or ages 15-18 consists of five classes with a performance on the last day. Students learn the fundamentals of improv style with exercises & games!

One-Day Teen Workshops

A single day drop-in improv class. If your teen is curious about what improvisation is, or how to get started doing it, this is the perfect class!


What age must my teen be to take classes?

Teens ages 11-18 may take classes here. The teen classes are split by age level: 11-14 (middle school, generally) and 15-18 (high school, generally).

When are the classes held?

During the school year, classes are held on the weekends. During the summer, we offer weekly intensives that are held daily, Monday through Friday. We also offer some one day drop-in classes throughout the year, typically on the weekends.

Is there a show?

Yes! Each Teen improv course culminates in a show on the Gary Austin Stage at our school location. The shows are free to attend.

Does my child need to bring anything? 

We recommend bringing a light snack and a reusable water bottle. On a show day, students should bring a lunch.

How do I sign up my child? 

Go to our teen classes page to select a class. Parents/legal guardians must register for an account and will be guided to enter the teen’s information and electronically sign our permission slip and release.
