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 CLASSES   IMPROVE

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, students who participate in drama often experience improved reading comprehension, maintain better attendance records, and stay more engaged in school than their non-arts counterparts. Schools with arts-integrated programs, even in low-income areas, report high academic achievement.


WHEN DOES TEEN IMPROV  BEGIN?

Teen Improv is a six week course that meets once a week. The class is very popular and we encourage you to register online, or at the theater before each session begins. We begin new sessions every two months.

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 at the moment. Understanding how to let go of fear, and judgment is an important part of Teen Improv.

We will use theater games and short-form improv scenes to increase your listening and "yes, and!" skills, helping you become a better actor/actress and improviser.
