Intermediate Improv Skills: Students will develop 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.

Nicole has been improvising for six years and has been working with students of all ages for four years. Nicole has received improv training from Philadelphia Improv Theater and The Upright Citizens Brigade and she currently is on two improv teams.
