Laughter makes the world go round! But it takes finesse as a performer, expressive facial expressions, and the right timing in delivering jokes to make people laugh. This course will teach the skills behind improv comedy that encompass humour + creativity + performance + positive thinking.  

 

'Improvisational comedy' uses different drama games that allow participants to face ever-changing emergencies with instant reactions and no preparation. The process will help kids: 

- Understand their habitual thinking and be inspired to make changes by entering the "YES AND" positive mindset 

- Improve communication skills through humour, creativity, crisis management, trust in others,  listening, and asking questions 

 

Many foreign academic studies have confirmed its benefits. In 2013, the Department of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania pointed out that improvisational drama training and applied psychology training have similar effects. Both can improve self-awareness, communication and mutual trust between people. Other studies have noted that just 20 minutes of improvisational practice can significantly improve people's diverse thinking.
