Class Description

Acting without a script? That’s Improv! This class teaches students to think fast, play smart, and laugh hard! Students learn how to create a scene, develop a character, and come up with conflict and resolution in a matter of seconds as they master the rules of improv. At the end of this class students will have the opportunity, (but are not required) to audition for the CYT Improv Team that will compete this June in San Diego at the National EXPO and Improvathon. Students are not required to audition, however, if you want to auditon you must be in this class. (*Exception: Previous Improv Team Students). All Improv Team expectations and requirements can be found on the website under the PDF dropdown.

I found theater in 2008 when I started doing tech, and I have enjoyed all things crew and tech since. I have worked with CYT since their first show in 2013 and have been with them in various ways ever since. I have worn many hats and have served as a crew member, camp counselor, teacher, improv coach, stage manager and technical director. I love working with the students and watching them grow and mature in their talents.

I am passionate about empowering young artists! I have more than a decade’s experience working with children of all ages - I’ve taught four year old's stage combat, served as artistic director for a traveling college theater company, and watched live theater build confidence and transform lives. I graduated from Moody Bible Institute with a BA in Communications, emphasizing in Theater, in May 2019. I’m thrilled at the chance to put my degree to work at CYT!
