IMPROV ONLINE!

June 29 - July 3, 2020

DO YOU LOVE IMPROVISATION?

Students will explore their passion for improvisation in an online format. Students will work in small groups to tap into their creativity through a wide variety of improvisation games and activities, each building on the next to develop collaboration, problem-solving, and quick-thinking skills. The week will end with an online showcase of improv scenes and techniques that family and friends can be invited to watch. 


HOW THE CAMP WILL BE STRUCTURED ONLINE

Activities will be geared toward both the beginning and the more experienced improvisor. The number one requirement is a willingness to jump in and try!

Students will learn to use Zoom so that small groups of performers can interact and perform improv scenes.  A culminating showcase of scenes will be performed on the final day.

SECTIONS, DATES, AND TIMES

Grades 6-8: June 29-July 3. 1-2:30 PM daily.

Grades 9-12: June 29-July 3. 3:30-5 PM daily.

*Additional sections may be added as demand warrants.
