Where are the classes taught?
All of our classes are taught at the Just The Funny Theater & Training Center, located at 3119 Coral Way; Miami, Florida 33145.
How long is each class?
All of our Improv Acting and Sketch Writing classes are 2 and 1/2 hours in length. They usually run from 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm on weeknights, except Wednesday and Friday. Some classes may run at other days and times, please check our CLASSES page HERE.
How many classes are in each session?
Each Improv Acting and Sketch Writing session is 7 classes in length and meets once per week, unless offered as an intensive.
What is the student performance?
At the end of each session, every one of our classes has a student performance on the Just The Funny stage. We know that learning improv and sketch in class is great, but performing what you have learned for friends and family is applying what you have learned for a supportive audience.
Do I get a certificate of completion?
Yes! When you complete a level, handed out on the night of your student performance, you will receive a certificate of completion with your name on it!
Can I audit, or try out a class?
All of our classes are interactive in nature and require that our students push themselves as part of the learning process. To have an audience, even of auditing potential students, inhibits our students and the learning process. So we do not allow auditing of our classes. Equally, our students take our classes and commit to the learning process. To have potential students trying out classes lessens the learning process and keeps everyone from having a consistent experience. As such, we do not allow potential students to try out classes.
Can I skip a level or two?
Every improv and sketch school has their own unique and wonderful way of teaching the craft. What may be taught in one, may not be taught in another. What may be level one at a school, may be taught in another level at another school. All of our Improv Acting classes lead from one level into another, building on what students have learned in the previous level, working from beginning to performance level.
What if I need to miss a class?
We know that from time to time students will have to miss a class or two. Our classes are designed to review previous classes, so that students can easily catch up, if they missed a class, or can just get a refresher of the last class. However, if you have to miss more than 3 classes, we will hold your graduation and give you a credit to repeat the class at no extra charge.
What perks do I get as a student?
We offer our paid and current improv and sketch students free admittance to all Just The Funny shows at the Just The Funny Theater & Training Center, except special events. Students will also be given access to our private Facebook group, where they can network with other students and JTF instructors. As an additional perk, we offer our students advanced registration for guest and private workshops.
Do you offer refunds?
At this time we do not offer refunds. Once you enroll, you will have a credit for the class you have enrolled for, or the lowest level of class that you have not completed. You will never lose your money and can come back at any time to take the class that you paid for.
