Danville: ‘Improv for Everyone’ teaching adults how to think on their feet

Classes to occur every Monday starting Aug. 14

"Improv for Everyone," a beginner adult improvisation class being offered through the town of Danville, promises to teach residents to think on their feet, practice spontaneous communication skills and have fun while doing so, starting Aug. 14.

“Improvisational skills can help with interpersonal communication, career development, and adaptability to life’s curveballs, while at the same time, increasing confidence, public speaking abilities, observational skills, and mindfulness. Improv can also decrease social anxiety, shyness, and the fear of making mistake," town officials said.

In this program, students — taught by instructor Mike Kasin — will have the opportunity to experience the transformative nature of group play, focusing on a wide range of techniques to practice spontaneity, creativity and collaboration.

The class is for residents 18 years old and up and meets every Monday from 6:30-7:30 p.m., starting on Aug. 14.

The class will meet at the Village Theatre Art Gallery on Aug. 14, Sept. 11, Sept. 18 and Sept. 25, and will meet at the Town Meeting Hall on Aug. 21 and Aug. 28.

A final rehearsal will be held on Thursday, Sept. 28 with the final performance set for Sept. 30 at the Village Theatre, for which participation is not mandatory.

Registration for the program is $100 for Danville residents and $120 for non-residents. Prospective students can find more information about the program and enroll online at or by calling the Danville Community Center at 314-3400.
