This 55 minute class gives students a taste of improv and creativity, encouraging them to be present, active, and have fun!

Class experience

Students will learn "the rule of yes," while playing games and interacting with each other throughout class. They will learn how to use their bodies and creative minds to act out specific characters and scenarios, and have fun putting these things into different genres. 
I am a "working actor" outside of class, and have lots of experience in commercials, auditioning for professional TV shows/films, and writing/producing my own scripts. I am also an actor for the Murder Mystery Company, which is an interactive-based improv troupe that performs murder mystery shows around the country. I have taught in camps and after school programs for years, and one of my campers' favorite classes were improv. They love just being in the moment, creating, making up scenarios, and interacting with others. I've seen improv & acting positively affect so many kids because it really builds confidence and listening skills. Acting is a great way to get their mind off of every day stresses, and I love seeing them be able to let go, be in the moment, and have fun! I've worked really hard to create games catered to online learning, and I'm always learning fun ways to teach along the way. As always, feel free to read my full bio and watch my video on my profile page. Hope to see ya in the classroom! 
No materials needed, but we will be doing a lot of "on your feet" activities throughout class, so an open space where we can see students' full body movements (as opposed to sitting at a desk or table) will be super helpful and encouraged! 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
