What is improv and what are the benefits?
In improv, we make stuff up and we make people laugh! It’s like acting in a play, but without the scripts. A live audience calls out suggestions for performers to run with, and hilarity ensues.
Improv teaches teamwork, focus, communication skills, listening, kindness, embracing fear, connecting, public speaking skills, being in the moment, finding the joy in lifting others’ spirits, quick-thinking, creative problem solving, finding and trusting your voice, and so much more!
When taught correctly, it’s the world’s greatest confidence-booster.
What kind of kid should do this?
Any! Seriously! We aren’t a “child actor” kind of place. We’re a come-have-fun, work-on-some-lifeskills, laugh-and-make-friends kind of place.
So is it just, like, bathroom jokes the whole time?
Ha! No. We help gently guide students toward creative, thoughtful ideas. We have magical, secret tricks that make them immediately abandon all yucky, violent, inappropriate stuff, without shaming them for naturally thinking those topics are funny.
Are you hiring/expanding?
Not at this time. Our programming is on pause. :)
