Improv 101: Games and Fun for Kids

Looking for a fun way to teach your child skills like listening, collaboration, self expression, and honoring others’ ideas? The same principles that help improvisational theater actors perform together on stage can help people of all ages, especially children, interact with more kindness and openness to others – and themselves! In this class we’ll play games that teach the basics of improv like “Listen,” “Make your partner look good,” and “Yes, and…,” as well as storytelling skills and tips for confident body language. This class is recommended for children age 8-11. No theater experience is required. Let’s have fun!
