In this clown/comedy class, we will improvise our way through silly games that emphasize personal and professional development. In an incredibly supportive environment where winners and losers are both celebrated, we will play group games and partner up for some duo exercises that demonstrate that success and failure are both cherished gifts. As a happy byproduct of participating in ridiculous comedy games, students will learn to be present, confident, open, and engaging. We will build trust and communication skills as we explore how to use nonverbal elements such as tone and body language to win an audience’s heart. And of course, we will laugh! In comedy, mistakes don’t stop the fun; they add to it. So let’s mess up! No floppy shoes required.
