Youth Improv Level 1 is a fun and engaging introduction to improvisation. This class focuses on the foundations of improv like:
…which all happen to be GREAT life skills, too!
Through games and exercises, students will practice individual skills, create stories, and learn to be part of an ensemble, all in a low-pressure environment with an emphasis on FUN!
The class will culminate in a showcase where we play with and for family and friends.
At the end of the 8 weeks, students may either continue in Youth Improv Level 1 or move on to Youth Improv Level 2. In both classes, your coaches will work with you to tailor instruction to your level.
