The Torch Theatre is proud to offer professional training in improvisation for the theatre. Our instructors have studied and performed with masters of longform improvisation all over the country, and we are excited to be building a community of funny, passionate and interesting players right here in Phoenix, Arizona.
With a core curriculum based on longform improv, The Torch aims to build strong actors and ensembles in Phoenix, Arizona. So, what is longform improv? It is a performance built collaboratively on stage from a single suggestion. It could be a series of scenes, songs, characters or even movement that explore a theme. It is built by the performers together as the audience watches.
The Torch Theatre Longform Training Center offers ongoing courses in improv to help students develop and explore this craft. Class sizes are kept small to promote ensemble building and to allow instructors to cater courses to the individual needs of our students. We offer flexible payment plans and internship opportunities. If you are interested in enhancing your acting skills or learn the craft of improv, call or e-mail to learn more about our program.
