Open House for TEENS at Santa Fe Improv

Come to the Santa Fe Improv Studio for a free afternoon of fun with improv. Bring your teen to learn some of the games and exercises that make improv easy to love!

Why improv? Improvisation provides an amazing opportunity for teens to develop their creativity, build trust, and diminish social anxiety. Improv class is a safe place to make choices, fail without self-judgment, develop listening skills, and nurture the creative talents we all have within us. The first premise of improv is a pathway towards positive thinking and collaboration: to say “Yes, and…” to our ensemble of team members.

Teens’ ideas matter, and for them to embody that premise allows them to build confidence and the positive attitude that can change the world!

And besides all of that, improv is good fun!

Date & Time:
Saturday • April 27
1:30 - 4:30 p.m.

Location:
Santa Fe Improv Studio
Back door of Warehouse 21 • 1614 Paseo de Peralta • Santa Fe
