Description: This lively class will use improvisational exercises to teach students the importance of listening, saying YES, being present and using those skills to create characters and build worlds. Improvisational acting is based in comedy and we encourage silliness and fun! Improv has many benefits including bringing a sense of calm in dealing with the unknown, feelings of confidence and decreased sense of anxiety! This class is open to new students, but returning students are welcomed too!
