Class Description

Acting without a script? That's improv. This class teaches basic improvisational and comedy skills as well as perfecting students' abilities to think on their feet! Students will learn the basic techniques to improv, thinking creatively and quickly as a team, and effectively initiating and navigating the necessary steps in creating an improv scene.  This class is for those looking for an introduction to improv and will be taught by Melissa Guest.
*This class will not have a showcase performance, instead we will have a parent observation night.
