Open Adult/Teen Movement Improv
Fridays 6:00pm-7:00pm PT
(Classes run weekly throughout October-December, student may join at any session.)
This class will explore the creativity of movement by utilizing the principles of improvisational theatre. Class will focus on theatre games, improvisation skills, and ensemble building for students to ultimately create a devised piece. Through the implementation of improv techniques, individuals can build trust and connection. Once this has been established, we will explore how movement can heighten this relationship within a group as well as within each individual.
This class is open to both teens and adults, must be 16 to join. Some exceptions considered, email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
