About this Event
This club is for anyone aged 11-14 and runs online every Thursday after school from 25th February to 1st April, 4.15-5.30 pm GMT for six weeks.
Our online improv club is the perfect place for young folk to laugh, let loose, build confidence and meet friends all over the world.
This club allows young people to make up their own hilarious stories and scenes, with fun improv games that let the imagination run wild – and all this from your own living room!
Improv helps improve confidence, creativity, social skills, communication, and is a fantastic way to stay active and have some fun with other people the same age (though we are sure you are hilarious too).
