Improv is a form of live theatre where plot, characters and setting are co-created during the moment of performance. Improv isn’t about being funny. It’s about being you – bringing your life experience to the stage, combining it with others’, and experiencing the magic that unfolds. This course is for teens who want to practice the fundamentals of improv – whether you’re a true beginner or one with true beginner’s mind. We’ll have fun, strengthen our core improv muscles, and develop skills that will enhance our personal lives, too.

Cost: $30

Ages: 13-17
