Improv is an ArtBe Bold… Say Yes. Improvisation isn’t just performing without a script; It’s the art of embracing the moment. The art of listening and responding positively to the world around you. A.O.S. Improv takes great pride in its training and performance program as it not only prepares the actor for the audition, but we are teaching our students life skills to better themselves in the classroom, at the workplace, and at home.
