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.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT SUE
“Stayed in constant communication with myself. My son was always eager to come and learn.”
“Our son has ADHD, which causes him to be unfocused in a school setting. We provided a copy of our son’s IEP and the teachers worked with him, enabling him to have a wonderful, enriching experience in the improv class.”
“She was great!”
