Little Forks – Improv classes for High School Students with Big Fork Theatre | 8 May, 2021
8 May, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$200
Improv is a whole lot of fun and the perfect way to kick off the weekend!
Students will explore the basic principles of improvisation in a fun, creative and supportive environment. Improv is perfect for exploring creativity, supporting social skills, and building confidence. No previous acting experience required, it is a low-stress introduction to acting while also a great tool for the budding actor.
Over the 8-week term, students will be introduced to the basic tenets of improvisation such as:
– Creating characters
– Building fantastical worlds
– Working together with other actors
The course runs for 8 weeks every Saturday morning. Friends and family are invited to attend a portion of the final class where the students will share what they have learned.
This class is for students currently in grades 7 through 12.
