Hudson Valley Improv creates fearless performers and creators. People who come in saying a whole lot of, "I can't..." very quickly realize we don't speak that language. As a result, we have always attracted a wide span of people from all backgrounds and professions who have the willingness and open hearts to not only learn how to say YES, but encourage each other to do the same. The result? A diverse, fearless, supportive crew who have the same training and share a similar mad scientist mentality and willingness to create great performances.
Each week our Company comprised of former students and fellow performers meet to develop and rehearse original shows for Hudson Valley Improv, thus furthering our purpose to "push the envelope" and explore what is possible with improv. We have created several unique shows, all developed through improv and company collaboration.
Hudson Valley Improv Training hosts monthly Jams where both current students and company members can get together and practice. We also produce Mash & Ups which are live shows featuring students and Company members together on stage. The catch? No onerous what game they are playing until they are called to stage. Oh boy!
Several of our grads and current students produce their own shows all over the Hudson Valley. We love to help spread the word and love it even more when our gang works together to fill the Hudson Valley with more live performance opportunities.
We promote each others work. We show up at shows. We help each other practice. We refer each other. What can we say? It's a community of people who met and established our friendships through playing games. It's pretty awesome. Join us!
