Featured Class

Improvisation Grades 6-12

Improvisation Grades 6-12 Time: 10:10 am - 11:10 am Start Date: March 17 End Date: April 28 (No class Saturday, March 31) Saying "yes" is the key to our improvisation classes. With every class we gain an understanding about working together in a scene, building on offers, and knowledge of verbal and non-verbal communication. Students will explore all of these life skills through improvisation exercises used to train the brain to think quickly but with reason.
