Writers' Studio



Regardless of background or experience, kids thrive in this imaginative environment where feeling accomplished is as simple as participating and supporting others. While many kids take improv to have fun with their friends, other benefits include boosting self-confidence and strengthening focus - skills that are useful in both improv and in life.

Each session starts with a few simple warm-ups followed by as many fun games as possible, then a cool down before class ends. Students will have the opportunity to participate in many different types of games such as guessing, advising, scene development, and more.


  • For students ages 8-10.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
