WHAT IS IMPROV: THE BASICS

5-Part Course

Instructor: Carol Brooks

Improvisation is an excellent and essential skill to have in your acting “toolbox” and in the real world. Improv is the art of thinking on your feet and reacting by saying something fitting that keeps the conversation moving forward. It’s also an essential skill for ad-libbing when required at auditions or in performance. Thinking fast on your feet is also a great skill for life. We will explore improv through fun, educational games to build skills and confidence.

Let’s face it.  We’re not all genetically destined to be actors, singers or dancers in the first degree.  Some of us are more apt to become artisans, linear thinkers, technicians or visionaries in our own right by virtue of our aversion to performing in public as a vocation.  Parents and youngsters alike, embrace this concept and you will understand why Camp Maranacook Arts makes perfect sense in this day and age.  Learn early about the vital work that behind the scenes staff and crew bring to the table for all film and theatre productions.

We look forward to bringing you more “…life skills through the arts”.
