Improv For High School Students says
We are super excited to announce that we are bringing back our improv program for students in grades 9 through 12! Plus, we have secured an amazing new instructor for the program, Bridget Cavaiola!

Beginning with Term 1 of 2017 high school students will be able to take our same Level 1 through 3 classes after school or on the weekends with the same professional level teachers that the adults learn from. 11th and 12th grade students that complete all three levels will also be eligible to take our adult elective classes like musical improv, clown, or sketch! The program is designed for high school students that are serious about comedy and theater and want to learn from the pros in a fun, supportive, and challenging environment. All classes also get a show on our stage, just like our regular classes.

Level 1, which begins January 10th, introduces the key tenants of improvisation with an emphasis on ensemble building, “yes, and…”, and beginning scene work. Following the same curriculum as our adult Level 1 class, this level focuses on increasing confidence, playfulness, and communication skills and builds a foundation for quickly creating engaging and fun improv scenes. Level 1 registration is now open for class starting January 10th and the early-bird discount is available through November. Class is capped at 14 students. Register early!

Taught by Bridget Cavaiola, an educator, improviser, and facilitator and the former Education Director for the Baltimore Improv Group and a Teaching Artist for Young Audiences of Maryland. She is currently a teaching artist with Arts for Learning San Diego and works with students in grades K-12 learning improv in the classroom and has been performing and teaching improv to adults and children since 2005.
