Welcome to BATS Summer School! Join two of BATS’ world-class coaches for an in-depth dive into the wonders of BATS-style improvisation! This four-day intensive is perfect for students with little to no improv experience who want to get a thorough introduction in a single weekend of study. Completing this intensive is the equivalent of completing a BATS Improv Foundation 1 course, and will qualify you to continue on in our curriculum with Foundation 2.
The intensive structure of this workshop (7 hours of study per day, for 4 days straight) allows students to steep themselves in the principles of improv—spontaneity, listening, storytelling, playfulness, accepting offers, paying attention, creating environments, and making something out of nothing.
There are shows on the Bayfront stage each night to give students an outside perspective on the skills they're learning during the day.
Set against the backdrop of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge right out the window, BATS' beautiful Bayfront Theater is the venue for four days of playing, laughing, meeting new people, and discovering new, playful parts of yourself. Past students have described it as summer camp for adults!
Snacks will be provided throughout the day to keep you going strong and opportunities to socialize with your fellow students will be organized for each evening after class!
*Sign up before June 1 and get a discounted price of $449!
*AFTER June 1, pay for two four-day summer intensives and get $50 off your second intensive
