Why Improv for Teens?
•Enhances close listening and communication skills
•Supports courage and risk-taking
•Develops collaboration and teamwork
•Builds and supports creativity (by pushing past the self-editing that we all do)
•Supports originality and flexibility
•Enhances critical thinking (per a 2009 Johns Hopkins University study)
•Reduces social anxiety (2018 University of Michigan study)
•Gets kids off electronics and reminds them that movement can be fun, fun, fun!
•It’s challenging
•It’s fun and makes them laugh!
•Anyone can do improvisation. Sí, se puede!

On the final day, those who wish can perform their creative works for friends and family.

Intro to Improv

Santa Fe Improv’s next introductory class has been scheduled and you're invited! The SF Improv teacher will guide you in a simple and fun process to learn the beginning techniques of improv.

And make no mistake, improv is something anyone can do. It doesn't take an actor or comedian or class clown to be good at it. It only takes the desire to learn something new and have fun! 

Why take improv? The benefits, besides getting to play like a kid when you're an adult, are numerous. Enhanced communication skills and, interestingly, a heightening of social courage, seem to be a part of the deal. Spontaneity and creativity are given free reign. All you have to do is say, "Yes, and..."

Date:
Tuesday • July 16
6 til 8:30 p.m.

Location:
The SF Improv Studio at Warehouse 21 (enter door at back of building)
1614 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe

Instructor:
Scott Plunket (he's a genius at making the process simple, fun, and rewarding)

Cost:
$25 plus tax
