Anoo Tree Brod & Jeff Merron  – Saturday, May 7, 10:00am-3:00pm (In-person)

With a variety of basic improv games and exercises students will have opportunities to have fun while tapping into their most spontaneous, imaginative and creative selves. Improv provides all kinds of benefits: learning how to deal with anxiety in social or group settings, how to work (and play!) with others, and how to tap into your deep wells of creativity.

  • This class is perfect for teens who:
  • Have never taken improv and want to give it a try
  • Have done improv or acting and want to up their game on stage
  • Have thought about public speaking or acting or performing and want to dip their toes in the water
  • Just want to be learn some skills to be more comfortable and confident in social situations

No experience necessary for this afternoon of fun, games and laughter in a no-pressure environment.
