By learning performance games and taking risks in a safe environment, DSI students develop the ability to tell stories collaboratively and work in the moment.

Instructor: Vinny Valdivia

Vinny Valdivia

Vinny has been studying and performing short form and long form improvisation since 2008. He is currently on a million teams and loves playing with everyone. Besides performing, Vinny also coaches and teaches at DSI. Take one of his classes, say Hi! He likes people.

On his days off, Vinny loves to make music by playing drums and pretending he's good at guitar. From 1997 to 2003, Vinny played drums and toured with several bands including Bayside and The Prizefighter. To sum up his feelings on improv comedy: it's all about doing. There is no point in thinking about what you could have done and if you're busy thinking about what you're going to do then you're missing out on now. Instead of worrying about what's going to happen, make something happen.

Vinny also wants a saxophone.

Improv 101 is neither particle nor wave but has qualities of both.
