What is 10,000 Hours?

10,000 Hours is a Peoples Improv Theatre (PIT) supported program created by PIT house team member, Julia Morales (www.callmejules.com). It is designed for improv students of all levels interested in organized and budget-friendly practice groups. This program is an amazing opportunity to meet new friends, form indie teams, and to become more familiar with faces around the improv community.

The practice sessions are inexpensive because experienced coaches from all over the New York area donate their time to coach. Each practice session allows students more time to work on the skills that they are learning in their classes as well as challenge themselves by working with students of different skill levels. 10,000 Hours practice sessions are NOT classes.
