ACTING & IMPROV

Grades 5-8
Instructor: Tammy Harper
Friday 4:00-5:30

Everyday life is an improvisation! There is a set of circumstances that we have to respond to in every minute of every day. We have to learn to “read” people’s energy, understand their intonation and then react. We also have to listen.
Improvisation is fun and SO funny and it is also an incredible skill builder. Learn to think on your feet, practice active listening and say “yes” to Acting & Improv.

You will be an actor, director, cinematographer, and pirate extraordinaire! Creating this piece over Zoom means that we can really dig in to each person’s individual talents and creativity. The intimacy of performing theatre on Zoom is an indispensable tool for developing a performer’s rapport with the audience as well as their specificity as an actor. Although primarily taking place online, this class intends to safely include four in-person days of rehearsal, recording, and cast bonding.
