Storytelling and Improv Games for Youth with Erin Murray
Keep your afternoons and weekends interesting and full of laughter.
This is the perfect way for kids to get an introduction to improv and theater while they laugh together with new friends. Designed specifically for youth in 3rd through 5th grades, this hour session will introduce them to the fun of improv online!
Kids will learn theater games, and creating their own fun out of nothing. Improv is particularly beneficial to this age group as it builds resilience, creativity, problem solving and connection.
They will build confidence in a supportive environment and learn to Yes, And others. Basic story creation, emoting and acting will be explored. We’ll play games that tap into their creativity, while developing skills that enhance listening and engage the imagination.
They will be able to play these games on your own! Keep your afternoons and weekends interesting and full of laughter. Even better, you’ll learn how to perform short form improv games in an online setting. Future video calls with family and friends instantly become more fun!
Children ages 8 thru 11 welcome.
