You wanna learn how to write killer sketches? This is your first step. In these weekly classes, you’ll explore the technical aspects of sketch, collaborate with your teacher and classmates, and eventually put up a sketch recital on TNM’s stage in front of actual paying audience members. This is how you learn to do the thing.


Kirsten Macaulay is a member of the sketch group,Virginia’s Harem. She has been taking improv and sketch classes at the New Movement for over a year. Kirsten is a part of the writing team of the New Movement monthly show, All Together. Her sketches have been performed as part of Hell Yes Fest and the San Francisco Sketchfest.

We begin new classes every few weeks. If this one is sold out or held at an inconvenient time, sign up for our next class session HERE.

Our improv and sketch class sessions consist of 8 weekly, 2 hour sessions, and a recital show performed in front of an audience.

New class sessions start all the time; at $225 each. Ideally, students continue in the same time slot from Level 1 onward, but if you need to switch to another time or need more info about our Level 2-Level 5 classes or internships, please contact TNM’s Conservatory Director (Nola – TNMNOLA@gmail.com, ATX – TNMATX@gmail.com).

We also offer sketch writing classes, team building workshops for businesses and corporations, week-long and weekend intensives, and kids and teen comedy classes.


To reserve your spot in class, a deposit of at least half of your tuition is due before the first day of class. The remainder of your tuition is due by the third class of your current level. If you need to discuss a payment plan, email the Conservatory Director for your city (ATX – TNMATX@gmail.com, Nola – TNMNola@gmail.com), and they will consider your request on a case-by-case basis. We offer a variety of fun internships for half-price tuition, so please inquire at the email addresses above if interested.

We accept payment for classes via http://paypal.me/thenewmovement, Venmo (username: TheNewMovement), or you can leave checks/cash with your teacher @ TNM.

All refund requests must be in writing. Students seeking a refund or a partial refund, should send an e-mail to the Conservatory Director as soon as they have decided to withdraw. Each refund request will be processed within 30 days of such request. Refunds may be issued for courses upon student withdrawal under the following provisions:

8 Week Courses
– A full refund of deposit/tuition (minus a $25 processing fee) is available only when withdrawal notification is received by noon (12pm) three business days prior to the start of the course. For example, refund requests for a Monday night class must be received by Wednesday at noon. Requests for Saturday or Sunday classes would have to be received by Tuesday at noon.
– For withdrawal after the start of the first day of class, students will receive a refund of their tuition/deposit minus a $25 processing fee and a $50 administration fee.
– For withdrawal after the start of the second day of class, students will receive 25% of their tuition/deposit.
– After the third day of class, there are NO refunds of their tuition/deposit.

Because of their lower price, most workshops are non-refundable, but we will consider refund requests on a case-by-case basis.
