Alistair Cook invites you to improvise and build your own improv playbook for the classroom. In this fun, hands on workshop participants will learn basic improvisation warm ups, target training exercises, and how to set up your schools own improvisation tournament (or non competitive performance).
Be sure to bring your questions about ALL FORMS of improvisation. Alistair looks forward to answering as many as he can during the workshops.
