I teach you to speak up for yourself and your needs with confidence, trust and pride.

Speaking up for yourself and your needs with confidence, trust and pride is Improv.

I teach Improv.

Hi I'm  Shannon Stott, Welcome to

Improv | On and Off the Stage, 

The only Black Owned Improv Company in Austin TX. and one of the few in the universe. 

What Does Improv | On and Off the Stage Do?

We produce Improv courses, workshops, retreats and productions, all centered around providing a space for you to

practice speaking up for yourself and your needs with confidence, trust and pride.

Courses

Come take a live or virtual course with us. Courses are 3 weeks long, 3 hours a week. 

We intentionally limit our class size 

so instructors can give thoughtful, individual support to you, the Journeyer.

Workshops

Our live and virtual workshops give you time to settle into the material and build trust with the other Improvisors. 

The live workshops are 4 hours and 30 min.  you'll feel connected to yourself and community afterward. 

Productions

All Together Now and This is (Y)our Story are our 2 main Journeyer Collaborative Productions.

Our productions use life themes like bravery and guide Journeyers to share parts of their lives based on those themes. 

I encourage you to join us for a production. You'll laugh, find vulnerability and connect to humanity.

Retreats

Our Journey Retreats truly represent the "Off the Stage" In Improv | On and Off the Stage.

We have hiked, baked, danced and more to explore the connections between the practice of Improv and life. 

I genuinely hope you will come with us.

Improv | On and Off the Stage

You don't need to be an Improvisor, to be part of this universe.

My mission is to show you that you're already Improvising (Speaking up for yourself and your needs with confidence, trust and pride) You are! It may be in your mind, or in the way your body reacts when you need to speak and don't, but you are Improvising. We'll guide you to Improvise out loud and on purpose. Whether you speak up for yourself and your needs On or Off the Stage,

is up to you.
