Improvisation Grades: 3-5 Time: 1:10 pm - 2:10 pm Start Date: April 2 End Date: May 21 Spontaneity is the key to our improvisation classes. With every class we gain understanding about working together in a scene and gain knowledge on 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.
