QUIPS FROM KIDS
Here are some deep thoughts from one of our students during a recent reading of Click, Clack, Moo by Doreen Cronin: a silly story about some cows that get their hooves on a typewriter and start making some demands.
CULTIVATING COURAGE WITH IMPROV
Looking to build creativity & courage in your kids? Try Improvisation!
Improvisation acting exercises capitalize on each student's imagination, and the possibilities are endless. And the best part is it's so simple! No props, costumes or major supplies needed!
Why do we love doing improv so much at CARE Actor? It's a wonderful way to build a multitude of skills such as encouraging one to trusting your own instincts, embracing spontaneity and staving off a fear of failure in the interest of collaboration and creativity. It celebrates the individual and provides a safe environment to experiment with ideas. It also encourages students to problem solve on an individual level and as part of a team. That's why we incorporate it into every session in our classes and camps and kids of all ages love it!
