Why Improv for Teens? In Youthprov, students learn the fundamentals of good improvisation through games and exercises. The games are fun and entertaining but they are also a creative process that encourages support, active listening being present, and intelligent risk-taking on and off the stage.
We help teens build self-confidence, public speaking ability, and cooperation all while having a blast! Our classes boost our student's confidence, curiosity, and creativity.
Improv teaches us to accept mistakes as gifts and communicate thoughts and ideas more effectively. AND, LIKE WE MENTIONED... IT'S FUN!
The focus is on creating ensemble work in a safe, supportive, and fun environment. Students have a blast, make friends and gain incredible life skills.
Students take classes to:
- Improve listening skills
- Improve their public presentation skills
- Gain amazing teaming skills
- Overcome shyness
- Build confidence
- Improve communication skills
- Think on their feet
- Take intelligent risks
- Come out of their shell
- Have a safe place to take risks
