Improv for Tweens



Improv for Tweens teaches 10-12 year olds about principles of longform improv such as Teamwork, Agreement, Base Reality, and Character. In a supportive environment using games and exercises, tweens will learn how to listen, use emotions and physicality in a scene, and how to “yes, and” their scene partner! The best part of this class? No homework!

Tuesdays, 4 to 5 pm, June 9 to 30 (with Lindsay Snow)
