About "Explore Comedy!" Youth Improv Camp


Students will have fun creating scenes out of thin air in this exciting introductory class. Using theater games such as those seen on Whose Line is it, Anyway? kids will learn how to listen to each other, work as a team, think on their toes, and be creative onstage.

Improvisational comedy fosters growth in confidence, encourages students to think quickly on their feet, and is a great tool for young actors to become comfortable using their bodies. Students learn how to listen to one another, work as a team, and be creative.

The class will culminate in an informal performance for family and friends at 5pm on Fri, July 28th. (A pizza party will be included from 3pm-5pm on July 28th. For aftercare on additional days, sign your student up for Afternoon Activities!)
