Spring Term: March 12th - May 14th

Improv - Improve, Using Improvisation Skills to Become a Better Actor

If this is your first time participating in a theater activity, or if you have been on stage many times this class is for you! We will be exploring the techniques of Improvisation. Theater and life skills will be learned and strengthened as we practice working together as an ensemble, being flexible, and learning to think on your feet. We will be using fun games and activities to accomplish these goals. This term we will include elements of Devised Theater, or Collective Creation, for our weekly activities. This approach will empower young actors as they practice their communication skills by listening to others and expressing their thoughts clearly. Come create with us!
The combined class Parent Presentation will be held on May 14th at 5:00 pm. All classes will meet at 4:00 pm that day to practice and prepare before the show.

Don't wait! Classes fill up quickly!

All classes will be held at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center at 222 E Drake Ave, Auburn, AL.
