About this Event
Intro to Improv Session | A fun and formal introduction to improv where no experience is needed and adults and mature teens are welcome!

In our 4 week Intro to Improv session, students are introduced to the main principles of improvisational theater using a series of short-form and ensemble story-telling exercises that are meant to be fun, challenging, confidence-boosting, and focus on building skill. This session meets 2 hours a week and has a total of 4 class meetings. It is a fun and formal introduction to the art of improv and designed for students who have zero prior experience.

Intro to Improv is perfect for:

  • team-players with no prior experience
  • go-getters interested in learning the art of improv and the techniques needed for skillful storytelling, terrific performances, and working as a cohesive ensemble
  • anyone who wants to build confidence, pursue a passion, strengthen communication or public speaking skills, overcome stage fright, gain a creative outlet, be challenged, learn how to articulate thoughts/feelings/emotions, make friends, grow, and have fun

Our classes are fun and supportive and they're all taught by professional, working, agency-signed actors who are in the industry right now!

What We'll Cover:
  1. A thorough understanding of what improvisational theater really is and what skills one must have to be skilled in this discipline (in short, a debunking of the many assumptions carried by the majority)
  2. The basics of unrehearsed acting, learning how to develop a point of view, pursue an emotional agenda, give and take focus, pinpoint an objective, and of course “yes and…”.
  3. A working understanding of narrative storytelling and how to confidently tell a story in a three-act structure as an ensemble
  4. How to exercise the analytical side of the brain to focus on simple goals; freeing the creative side and silencing the negative thoughts that can make us freeze during a performance (or in life, for that matter).
  5. Incorporating unrehearsed acting and cooperative direction into improv games, exercises, and scenes
  6. How to effectively and instinctually communicate what you want (say what you mean and mean what you say) and articulate how you feel in any given moment (i.e., scene or performance)
  7. How to get out of your head, think on your feet, articulate your ideas clearly, and make bold choices
  8. How to ease nerves and “stage fright” jitters with relaxation techniques so you can refine your public speaking skills

About Us + More Info:

Who We Are:

Creative Veins is an award-winning, A+ rated performing arts studio that trains students of all ages and experience levels in acting, improv, stand-up, and screenwriting. All our classes are taught by professional, agency-represented performing artists who live in Jacksonville and work regionally (Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Nashville, and Knoxville) on paid bookings in film, theater, commercials, television, and live show productions. Additionally, many of our instructors are multi-disciplined, meaning that besides being highly trained and skilled in their craft, they have also trained in acting, music, singing, dance, stand-up, and more! Our sessions are offered in 4-week blocks and meet once a week for two hours. From the newbie to the hobbyist to the serious, aspiring professional, we see a wide range of students; all with very different goals. We’re eager to help each student accomplish these goals, whatever they may be!

Class Size + Covid-19 Info:

Please note, our in-person studio classes are always kept smaller in size to provide a more personalized curriculum to ensure each student’s success in the program! Once a class is full it is marked as SOLD OUT and we cannot add any additional students to it. Additionally, and most importantly, the health and well-being of our students and faculty is vital to us. All students and faculty are required to wear masks as they enter the building. We're social distancing of at least 6 feet, requiring handwashing/sanitizing, and have a no-touch policy in place. All classrooms and common areas are sanitized prior to and immediately following all classes. For more info, please email us at the email address below for a comprehensive covid-19 policy our studio has in place.


We strongly encourage perfect attendance. If a class must be missed, we’ll do our best to get the student caught up in time for the next class, so they’re not behind. Missed classes can be made up in any future session. Make-up dates never expire.


We are conveniently located in the heart of downtown Jacksonville just two blocks up from The Florida Theater (approx. a 20-minute drive from most parts of our city)! Our studio is 4,000 square feet with a lobby and movie room for rides, parents, and guests to hang out during class! We offer plenty of free parking right in front inside our private lots. Additionally, there’s also free parking at the street meters on weekends and after 6 p.m. on weekdays.
