Our teen improv class provides the student with an exceptional opportunity to become a stronger actor, improviser, and comedian. The Blacktop experience offers students the chance to learn improv while making friends in a supportive, low-pressure environment. We believe students thrive with a blend of encouragement and direction
DRAMA IMPROVES ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Numerous studies have demonstrated a correlation between drama involvement and academic achievement. In addition to having higher standardized test scores than their peers who do not experience the arts, student who participate in drama often experience improved reading comprehension, maintain better attendance records, and stay generally more engaged in school than their non-arts counterparts. Schools with arts-integrated programs, even in low-income areas, report high academic achievement.

WHAT DOES TEEN IMPROV CLASSES OFFER?
Students will work as an ensemble, and learn the rules of improv, and teamwork. Teen Improv gives students an opportunity to feel comfortable onstage, and create characters in the moment. Understanding how to let go of fear, and judgement are important lessons in Teen Improv.
We will use theatre games and short-form improv scenes to increase your listening and "yes, and!" skills, helping you become a better actor/actress and improviser.
