"Yes, and..." Improvisation

This creative Working Group uses the tenets of improvisation and fun interactive games to allow kids to feel for themselves the freedom of being in the moment, using their instincts, giving and receiving support, and the magic of “Yes, and…”  Each week parents will explore different themes, and a set of games will be taught (and played!) that support these topics. 

There will be a summary with talking points for your kids to connect the skill with the experience of using it.  By the final week, parents will have a series of games to support these skills in their lessons.  Your kids will have a blast and they’ll be amazed at what they can do.  

Length & Duration: 60-minute live, virtual meetings once a week for 4 weeks
