Intermediate Improv Skills: Students will develop (or in the case of returning students extend) their foundations in comedic improvisation as they prepare for our middle school courses’ focus on short-form improv. Through a series of fun and imaginative classes, students will learn and improve skills like listening, collaboration, and character exploration. They will also learn the golden rule of “Yes, and…” as it applies to creating an improvised scene through agreement. The course will culminate in an improvised performance for family and friends.
