Classes for Parents and Guardians

Kids aren't the only ones who have fun in our building on Saturday morning! Parents and guardians of our students are invited to sign up for our special improv class, which takes place at the same time their children are learning during weeks 2-7 of the Kids & Teens program. You'll learn some of the same improv games as your budding comedians so you know what they're talking about when they come bouncing out of class each week. (And you'll have some fun yourself)!
