About the Intensive
Take a week to work on your improv and acting skills this summer. First we’ll cover the basics of improv acting, so you know how to walk on the stage with nothing and create worlds. Then we will get in there and work with your improv to make it as full and rich as possible. Including playing with character, timing, interactions, reactions, and working together. By the end of the week you’ll be ready to take the stage in our own performance for your friends and family. And blow them away!

Teen Intensive Topics
Each of our Teen Intensives will have a special topic, or improv format, that is used to focus the instruction.
July 10-14 – at the Hideout -Instructor: Mickey May – Focus: Narative Improv
This intensive is designed to develop and enhance improvisational storytelling skills.
Through a combination of interactive exercises and group performances, students will learn how to build and sustain a narrative arc, create compelling characters, and develop engaging relationships between characters.
Throughout the intensive, students will be encouraged to take risks, explore their creativity, and push their boundaries. The emphasis on narrative improv ensures that students will not only develop strong improvisational skills but also gain a deeper understanding of the power of storytelling and its ability to captivate and inspire audiences.
This will culminate in a final showcase at 4:00 on Friday, where the students can show off their new skills to friends and family.
This intensive program is ideal for teens who have experience with improv and are looking to take their skills to the next level.
