Youth Laughter School 11AM - 1230PM Grades 6-8 Starts 10/5/16

For a description of this class, please see the SATURDAY LAUGHTER SCHOOL (YOUTH) page.

ImprovBoston Youth Laughter School
The mission of our youth programming is to encourage and nurture our young performers’ innate curiosity, creativity, and ability to make connections with others. Our professionally-trained improv coaches create a fun and welcoming environment within which aspiring improvisers can explore, develop, and succeed, contributing to their overall sense of self-confidence, well being and connectedness.

Youth Laughter School (Perfect for Homeschoolers!)
With our Laughter School, we focus on the skills necessary to build a supportive ensemble that showcases teamwork, individual strengths and, of course, completely improvised comedy onstage (and off!). Weekly rehearsals focus on “short-form” games to foster growth in improv’s key competencies including: agreement, emotional and physical heightening, character work, give/take of focus, group mind, and basic stage awareness. Rehearsals culminate in a Saturday morning performance after week 10 of the program.
