After an improv student has completed at least two Jet Pack sessions then he or she is eligible for the Rocketeers class! The students continue to hone their improv skills with advanced exercises and more complex short-form style improv games. Rocketeers are also able to attend the annual Rocket Improv Field Trip into New York City where the students take a workshop with an advanced level improv instructor and see an improv show. The students perform a short-form improv showcase at the end of their session that they host entirely themselves.

BY INVITE ONLY

NO STUDENT CAN START IN THE ROCKETEERS. A student needs to have completed AT LEAST TWO Jet Packs classes for placement in the Rocketeers class. All classes are composed of students with different levels of experience and abilities. The students develop trust, a sense of ensemble, and a shared vocabulary and knowledge of the games as they move up through the program together. Those in the Rocketeers classes have already been working together for a year or more. We at Rocket Improv are a big believer in ensemble, trust, and group mind and do our best to foster those values in our kids classes.
