Class Description

In 2001, Jared Pixler and Linda Wolfe of CYT San Diego put together CYT’s very first Improvathon competition.  In 2004, the Improvathon became a truly nationwide event, as teams from San Diego, Kansas City, Atlanta, Vancouver, and Richmond competed. In 2006, Improvathon was held outside of San Diego for the first time, hosted by CYT Kansas City. Over time as CYT leaders from around the country began to meet on a yearly basis, the Improvathon became a part of the National CYT EXPO. The Improvathon is one of many events that happen at EXPO, an event that has over 450 participants annually.

This is CYT Waco's First attempt at an improvathon. Though we are not quite ready to compete at the national level we are able to have our own improv off!  Join us for this class where two or three teams will be formed and will compete for the Local title of Improv team of Waco!  


Tara Hoover

Tara has just recently moved to Waco and is so excited to join the CYT family! She grew up in theatre around the East Texas & Dallas area. Serving in her community as actress, stage manager, assistant director, choreographer, director & Camp Coordinator for Tyler Civic Theatre & countless others. She has been awarded 2 distinctions from The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Best Actress in OAP & doesn't count any of her talents for herself but for The Lord. Tara was a licensed actress for the Linicomn Agency for 3 years. This training was crucial, vulnerable & now very teachable in how the Film Industry is so different than Theatre & ways they both compliment each other. Her motto is "Theatre/Acting/The Industry is a raw & vulnerable craft... one that needs more of Jesus and less of ourselves. If I can help kids realize their potential, what God says about their gifts and how to go out and make disciples w/the talents they ALL possess? Then that's why I had all of the years of training, 50+ shows & countless 'Aha!' moments. Not for me, but to give back."

His love for theater and performing started at the age of 5 when he became a Christian at the end of watching a church Easter pageant performance. From then on, theater and being a follower of Christ were a part of him forever! Jeremy has been in numerous plays, musicals, and other performance events over the years. His favorite roles have included Jacob Marley in A Christmas Carol and Lazar Wolf in Fiddler on the Roof! He has also directed productions involving kids, teens, college students, and adults!
