Performing Arts


Regardless of your background or experience, you'll 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 skills that are useful in both improv and in life, like boosting self-confidence and strengthening focus.

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