Class Descriptions:

Story Play (Ages 5-8)

Everyone loves story time. In this class we take our favorite stories and act them out! We play dress up and with puppets and face paint and generally have a great time making our favorite stories come to life!

Fun-damentals of Improv (Ages 8-10)

Learn how be positive, take risks, and focus on the people you’re working with. We’ll learn about timing, story structure, building character, and more improv games than you can shake a stick at. This class will be a fun and supportive environment for kids to start focusing on what makes improv work.

Improvisational Principles (Ages 11-13)

Jump into some seriously hilarious improv work. Learn how to build exciting stories, create fascinating characters, and present them in the most awe inspiring way. This class is all about jumping in, having fun, playing hard, working together and finding your voice. Always fun, this class will focus on developing improv skills and creating performers.

Preparation for Performance (Ages 14-17)

In this class the topics will be determined by the students and the teachers. In the past we have covered such topics as playing improv games at the top of our ability, creating narratives, delving into deep emotions.  Each member of the class will help determine and shape the class.  Although you will have the opportunity to perform, it is not mandatory. Times and dates for out of class performances will be determined. This is our introduction class for this age range.
