Acting without a script? That’s Improv! This class teaches basic improvisational skills as well as perfecting students’ abilities to think on their feet! Students will learn how to create a scene, character, and conflict in a matter of seconds as they master the rules of improvisational acting.

The Competitive Improv team will rehearse during class time while our non-competitive team will continue to develop their skills and build their confidence.
