Improvise A Go Go!

Want to create fun, comic characters and scenes by making them up on your feet?  Then this workshop could be for you!

In this 2.5 hour improv class for kids ages 10-16, we will play a series of group improvisatory exercises and games with the end goal of original scenes and unique characters. We will also work and play towards a set list of our favourite improvisational games.

Our improv will involve movement so wear loose, comfy clothing, and bring a water bottle along with a willingness to explore and create new stories.  Our day will involve:

  •  Vocal, physical warm up.
  •  Making & accepting offers.
  •  Ensemble play: spontaneously creating character, scenes and set list.
