Team Improv

Taught by David Lee Rock, these 90 minute weekly courses teach students short form improv comedy in a fun, friendly and safe environment. Designed for 3rd graders and up, these workshops give a foundation in improvisational theatre. Improv I introduces basic techniques for maintaining focus and mental agility. Improv II expands on techniques to include characterization and maintaining storyline. Each workshop culminates in a live performance. Upon completion of Improv III, students, fully prepared, compete with the Improv Performance Team. Learning Improv helps to improve self-esteem, confidence under pressure, collaboration, problem solving, IMAGINATION and much more.
