Inspired by the interests of our students and our own love for creating with wild abandon, our improvisation classes are a perfect mix of autonomous creations, collaborations, and learning.Image

Cooking each day will be guided by the instructor, with culinary parameters dictated by the availability of ingredients and a set of daily “rules”- for example, each small group will be challenged to create a three course meal from the ingredients on their table, OR, each individual must create an appetizer to contribute to a class-wide lunch buffet. We may have mystery baskets, free-for-all cooking, and recipe-altering challenges. The challenges will be set forth to help guide students and boost everyone’s ability to think creatively. This class will NOT be competitive, though there may be competitive options for those interested.

Lunch and snacks are included in this class.
