Improv to improve at the BERKELEY HEIGHTS YMCA & SUMMIT YMCA. Join the Y and Vivid Stage for two free improv comedy classes for 7th graders. This is a great opportunity for students to expand their creative, communication, interpersonal and teamwork skills. All classes are taught by improv professionals. You’ll learn how to think on your feet by freeing your mind, body and imagination through group exercises and games in a fun, safe and supportive atmosphere.
There are many benefits to taking part in improv classes. One of the main benefits is that it helps you to develop your spontaneity, think on your feet and come up with creative solutions to problems. These are valuable skills that can be used in all aspects of our lives and helps develop confidence in being creative and resourceful under non-stressful pressure.

In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.
Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need.
