Improve your Spanish while exploring improvisational theater! We'll use improv theater games to put ourselves in all sort of situations and expand our vocabularies in fun, unexpected ways. No previous acting experience is necessary and you do not need to be fluent in Spanish to participate -- just bring a playful attitude and be a part of this supportive class environment.

This workshop is a great way to practice speaking Spanish, develop communication skills, practice empathy, and more. Teacher especially can benefit from learning improv techniques to get their students speaking more in the classroom.
