A “Joy of” Class allows students to play at a beginner level, experiencing the “Joy of” their selected unit. We offer these classes in Improv, Acting, Stand-Up, and Sketch. They are half the commitment (3-4 weeks instead of 6-8), and do not have a Graduation Show at the end of the course, taking off the pressure of having a final performance.
