CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS

FROM “YES AND” TO “YES, I CAN!”
“Yes, and” is the foundation of improv comedy that encourages kids and teens to support their teammates, take risks, and find confidence in their own voice. Quieter students come out of their shells, and rambunctious students learn the value of listening to others. From gaining confidence in their ideas, to thinking way outside of the box, it’s no wonder the skills learned in improv can help kids of all ages on the stage, in the classroom, and in life.

 

Oh – and it’s also tons of fun.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Philly Improv Theater recognizes that the cost of our Kids & Teens classes can pose a barrier to entry for some of our students and their families. In an effort to overcome this barrier, PHIT will award a number of need-based scholarships to study in our Kids & Teens program in each of our sessions throughout the year.
