Successful applicants join the company's prestigious IN Studios Conservatory where they will receive six months of improvisation classes at a significantly reduced rate, one-on-one career coaching, and regular performance opportunities. From that group, six to twelve conservatory members will be chosen for the IN Team.

Paid opportunities are available for alumni IN Team members who are featured in online videos, work as instructors, perform at private and corporate gigs, and participate in industry showcases.
