Active Improv Student Workshop Session 2

Join Ben and David of Active Improv!

Session 2: 4/2, 4/9, 4/16, 4/23, 4/30, 5/7, 5/14, 5/21

We’re excited to offer you another great opportunity to do more Improv! Our Student Workshop is a great place for you to play more and more short form improv games. In our workshops we’ll teach and play as many short-form games as we can in an hour. All students ages 10-13 are welcome to participate in our workshops. We encourage students who have previously taken one of our classes to stop by and to bring their binders so they can freshen up on their improv skills. We also would like to welcome all students that are new to improv to join us for a fantastic event where they’ll make friends, learn new games and laugh along the way.

PERFORMANCE is at 2:00 PM on May 23rd.
