Prerequisites: Students are required to have taken Mettlesome's 101: Intro to Improv. Students wishing to apply for an exception (ie who have documented prior, relevant improv experience) may do so by emailing hello<at>

Jonathan Yeomans has been improvising since 2008. He's performed, coached and taught all over the Triangle, and studied under improv instructors from theaters in Austin, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City. He's currently on local artist-inspired improv team GOLDEN AGE. He couldn't be more excited to teach at Mettlesome and hopes to spread the joy of improv far and wide. He also encourages you to stay hydrated. Summer is coming!
