HART holds student improv workshopStudents develop creativity, teamwork and quick-thinking skills
HART Theatre will begin a six-week after-school improvisation workshop for middle and high school students taught by Asheville improviser Kristen Donelle Livengood.
Kristen is a member of Asheville’s premiere improv comedy troupe, The OxyMorons. Students will learn improvisation fundamentals that will help them develop critical skills like teamwork and creativity. The middle school workshop will be held Mondays beginning April 1 and continues through May 6.
The high school workshop will be held each Thursday beginning April 4 and continues through May 9. Classes will be held from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Feichter Studio. Each workshop will culminate with an improv performance for friends and family. Workshops will cost $90 per student.
Workshop attendees will learn improvisation fundamentals in a fun, constructive environment. Students will gain a new outlook on interacting with others, as well as working toward a goal where everyone succeeds by contributing.
Improvisation is not only a fun way for young people to develop important life lessons it is also an excellent way for students familiar with theater to get a new perspective on acting and character development.
