1. Students are required to see two improv shows at The Improv Space
While enrolled in an Improv Space course, students will be allowed free admission to watch improv shows at the theater. Before graduating their class level, students are expected to attend at least two improv performances at The Improv Space. These shows allow students to witness improv concepts in action, and brief class discussions of these shows will help to build an improv vocabulary.
2. Attendance / Tardiness
Students are allowed two absences in the event of an emergency or scheduling conflict. If more than two class sessions are missed, the student will not be allowed to graduate onto the next level without retaking the course. Arriving to class more than 30 minutes late will be counted as an absence.
For 4-week Intensives, students are only allowed one absence.
3. No refunds on or after the first day of the class
If a student must drop out of the course before the third session, the student may be offered a credit to retake the class.
4. Code of Conduct
Every TIS student has the right to learn in a safe, supportive environment. The Improv Space is committed to forming a community for performers to come together to create, inspire and risk in a safe and fun environment - it’s part of our mission statement.
Inappropriate class conduct includes:
Consumption of drugs, alcohol, or use of tobacco products (including e-cigarettes) during class.

Additionally, students are asked to help foster a supportive learning environment without distractions. Students must abstain from eating, writing or reading text messages, using their cell phones, or talking while fellow classmates or teachers are talking.
Inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated and may result in suspension and/or removal from class without a refund.
