Description coming soon!
Join Geneviève Paré for an awesome adventure into the world of performing arts - no experience necessary! Learn the high art of goofing off! Through Improv games, theatre sports, and a dash of clown and puppetry, students will learn to make bold choices and embrace failure as a natural step towards hilarity. The week of unscripted silliness will culminate in improvised performance for peers. Participants will learn stage presence, improv, storyboarding, vocal expression, verbal and non-verbal story-telling and a whole lot more! Rumour has it that Gen even has experience in stunt wrestling and stage combat fighting!
