Improv is Elementary

This workshop includes improvisation techniques and games that will keep elementary-aged kids engaged and laughing. Kids will grow socially and become more self-confident as they work with peers to create characters and situations to tickle the funny bone or bring a tear to the eye. This session will consist of different activities than the fall session, so returning students will be as challenged as newcomers. We will be very active so tennis shoes are a must as well as a nut free snack and water bottle. Registration – $40
