Intro to Improv Workshop (Ages 12+)
Saturday, May 2nd, 11am-12pm PT
Experience the power of play and the fun of improvisation in this workshop. This class helps you overcome anxiety and "uncertainty", such as in auditions. It teaches you to be in the moment, say yes, to not overthink, make strong choices, listen, and most importantly, get back to simply playing and building something together.
