    2018-2019 CCMS IMPROV PROGRAM


  Improv is a comprehensive study of game-based, short form               improvisation directed and taught by award-winning
 professional improvisers, Jennifer Flack & Eric Price. Students     learn,  practice, and perform basics and
fundamentals of improvisation as well as advanced concepts and skills (scene study, character work, styles,
genres, and musical improvisation), culminating in a public performance at the end of each semester.
Most importantly, students develop essential life skills such as  acceptance, commitment, flexibility, critical
 thinking, courage, kindness, and authentic collaboration. No   experience necessary -- only commitment,
 adventurous spirit, and positive attitude are required! The CCMS     Improv Program is a year-long program.
• Classes are held one day per week (Tue, Thu, or Fri) after school @    2:30-4:30.
• All students will attend a monthly intensive class @ 4:40-6:15 (on     same day).
• All classes are held at CCMS.

what parents say about the CCMS Improv Program (anonymous
feedback
from
parents):
“This group was the deciding factor in attending CCMS!
It is an incredible program to offer our children at this awkward age
– it brings out the best in everyone!”
"I have only positive things to say about this program...
my child faced social and emotional challenges
that had him withdrawn, sad and/or angry much of the time. I have seen such a marked change in him since he joined this program.
It has had an amazing impact on my son, and consequently on our whole family!"
“Improv has helped my child to have the confidence & ability to perform academically, particularly when
the unexpected occurs. Practice with performance has enhanced his participation in class discussions and other public speaking forums."
“Improv has been great for my son's personal development. He's learned positive lessons about
having fun, working hard, taking responsibility, working in teams, and being willing to risk failure. It's fantastic!"
