What will we cover?
Improv consists of made-up on-the-spot random ideas created and shared in the form of skits and/or sketches in small or large groups on stage. We will go over the 5 basic rules of improv and apply them to a variety of large and small group activities and sketches. Through the variety of exercises and group sizes, this allows a safe space to be created where everyone can feel safe to take risks, have a laugh and have fun.
