Outreach shows and workshops available at your venue or bring your group to our Times Square Theater. Improv classes are a must for any up and coming performer. These classes also provide invaluable training for any young adult. Training in Improvisation teaches self confidence, communications skills (public speaking, one on one conversation skills, listening, eye contact), team work, leadership and creative writing. Major Corporatations hire our teachers to remind their top execs andteams the importance of good communication. Our goal is to impart this wisdom on youth before entering the work force.
For performers looking to make their mark in the industry, especially the New York market, Improvisation has become one of the cornerstones of casting commercials and TV jobs. With lack of rehearsal time, casting directors love an actor that can act on a dime with very little time and direction. Improv treaining adds to your skill sets and gets you noticed at auditions.Improv training and performance on your resume gets your materials to the top of the pile. Furthermore, many NYC casting experts will send their notices to us specifically looking for our staff to audition.

“OMG it was awesome! Truly one of the best activities I’ve ever seen take place here at Summit! We gave them a very large group of kids to work with, and they handled them wonderfully. The way that they related to the kids was terrific, and the activities they led worked on so many pragmatic language skills in SUCH an effective way, including increasing the kids’ awareness of their bodies in space, body proximity, eye contact, voice, and generally how others perceive them from their non-verbal cues. They also did word association and one-word stories that involved verbal expression and required kids to follow a story line. Almost all of the kids looked like they were having a fantastic time, and it was an activity where the shy kids could get to interact with others in a very structured (hence comfortable) way. At the end I spoke to the three members of the improv group and raved about how great they were and told them the specific ways that the activities helped our students. They asked me a number of questions, such as regarding how to handle various students’ behaviors, and we talked about upcoming activities.”

Our shows are the coolest way to inspire…
Our workshops are the coolest way to introduce…
Our residencies are the coolest way to develop…
Our Professional Development helps your staff build the future…
In addition to being great a cultural arts experience, Improv shows, workshops and residencies are the coolest way to get students excited about and teach creativity (writing and thinking out of the box), community (communications, respect, listening, focus, eye contact), and leadership (public speaking, self-confidence).
SHOWS – Our cast presents original music and skits created on the spot based on audience suggestions and participation. The shows are so much fun, the students don’t even realize the valuable skills they are learning. Our study guides help teachers prepare students before and follow up with important concepts following the program.
WORKSHOPS – 45-60 minutes of fun playing team building and storytelling games that warm up the mind and body to create and work together. These workshops get the students on their feet developing exposition (WHO & WHERE) and rising action (WHAT) for original stories. Students are asked to project and speak clearly so the whole class can hear. YES AND is the main focus, supporting your teammates.
RESIDENCIES – 20-hour (one-ten weeks, 2-5 hour sessions) programs prepare a group of students to perform their own show, diving much deeper into performing and creative concepts. Each session begins with warm-up and team activities. Students learn 5-10 classic games for performance. Students also share stories of the life that we develop in to comedy monologues. Our teachers tie in everything we do to writing reports and other activities for everyday classes.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – Our Improv Workshops for teachers serve a dual purpose. Team building for your staff AND providing teachers valuable tools to continue the work we begin. A team that enjoys working together gets things done!
