INTENSIVES

THE iO THEATER OFFERS SHORTER "INTENSIVE" VERSIONS OF OUR IMPROV PROGRAM THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

Don’t have time to go through our entire curriculum or live out of town? The iO Theater offers shorter “intensive” versions of our Improv Program throughout the year!

3 Week Spring Intensive

The great curriculum and teachers that have made iO LA one of the country’s best improv schools, is available in a 3-week intensive format. You’ll learn the breadth of the iO improv philosophy from the fundamentals of listening and agreement to performing scenes, to an introduction to the Harold--the signature longform improvisation piece at iO LA (and the world). The class culminates in a performance in our Mainstage theater.

The class meets every Monday through Thursday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM for three weeks. Each week is taught by a different one of IO’s acclaimed instructors. Past instructors have included: Craig Cackowski, Jason Shotts, Colleen Doyle, Dave Hill, Brian Jack, and Zach Huddleston.

The Spring Intensive is a great opportunity for both people that are just visiting Los Angeles as well as those that live in town and have the time and the desire to dive headfirst into iO training. Those performers that complete the Intensive and would like to continue their training at iO will be given the opportunity to be placed into an upper level class in the iO Training Center (specific class placement is based on cumulative teacher feedback).

Students may opt to take week 1, week 2, weeks 1 and 2 or the entire 3 weeks. Cost for doing a portion of the Intensive will be prorated.

Teaching lineups will vary but both sessions will be taught by our world-famous instructors.
