Why kids’ improv classes?

Improv is fun and exciting! Kids enjoy this lively creative outlet.  At the same time they will be learning some valuable skills such as:

  • Positivity
  • Communication 
  • Risk management
  • Working together
  • Building confidence
  • Self Expression 

These classes create a fun and supportive environment for kids to learn the basics of creating improv, story telling, and stagecraft. The classes are taught primarily through games, play, and improved stories.

 

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 games and create “mess up” stories and generally have a great time bringing 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.

Teen Class (Ages 13-17)

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. There may be other performance opportunities depending on the wishes of the class.

Improv for Special Needs

The Hideout Theatre is committed to growing special needs programming, with classes being offered to youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders and to at-risk youth in residential settings via our Building Connections program. Parents have reported that their children have gained a wide variety of benefits from taking classes, including expressive language gains, increased confidence, improved social skills, a decrease in negative behaviors, and an increase in self-expression. More information and registration can be found on our Building Connections Homepage.
