We offer eight-week, beginner-level improv classes at no cost to veterans, service members and military family members. Our improv courses provide veterans with a safe, constructive, and team-oriented environment to build valuable skills and express themselves. Oh yeah, and we typically end up laughing our butts off in the process. Our improv class culminates with a graduation show, where students invite family members and friends to support them as they take the stage for the first time! Upon graduation, alumni can participate in advanced-level improv courses through our partner improv schools. Finally, we host monthly improv jam sessions open to our alumni as well as all veterans, service members, military families, and caregivers who have intro-level improv experience. 


Upcoming Classes

PLEASE NOTE: Throughout 2018 and 2019, ASAP is conducting a Program Impact Evaluation (PIE) with Dr. Tom Ford of Western Carolina University and Dr. Janelle Junkin of unlock Ngenuity, LLC. ASAP is currently recruiting participants for its Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 classes. Fall 2018 Participants will complete a 25-minute survey before classes begin, a post-class survey two weeks after classes conclude, follow-up surveys again at three months and six months, and at least one interview or focus group. Participants waitlisted for 2019 will be asked to participate in a pre- and post-survey in Fall 2018. Completion of each survey automatically enters participants into a drawing for a gift card. Participation in the PIE is voluntary, and your willingness to participate will not affect your admission into the program. If you have any questions about the PIE, please feel free to contact ASAP staff at hello@asapasap.org.
