Students will learn the fundamental elements of improv and explore their creativity through short-form games, character work, and two person scenes. This class is designed to teach students how to work as a team through group mind exercises and developing an understanding of what the “yes, and…” mentality truly means. Children who have no theater experience will find this class to be a great introduction to acting, while more experienced youth can use this course to enhance and develop their skills.
