Featured Class


Improvisation Grades: 3-5 Time: 2:10 pm - 3:10 pm Start Date: March 21 End Date: May 16 *No Class on April 4* Spontaneity is the key to our improvisation classes. With every class we gain understanding about working together in a scene and gain knowledge of verbal and non-verbal communication. Students will explore all these life skills through improv exercises used to train the brain to think quickly but with reason.
