What are improv Jam Sessions?

Think of it as an Improv Meet-up. We open our stage for anyone (18 and older) to come and practice their improv with a bunch of like-minded people. It's not a show, and it's not a class. It's a way to try out improv, or practice improv, and meet other people interested in improv.  We are hoping to reinstate our improv Jam Sessions in the Fall of 2021.
