about Washington Improv Theater:
After years of leading Washington's premier improv training program for adults, Washington Improv Theater (WIT) now offers Youth Improv Classes for kids (ages 8-12) and teens (ages 13-17). WIT's classes are fun for everyone: all the young budding thespians and drama queens will love taking their craft to the next level by learning the art of improv; but equally importantly, those who have no previous interest or experience in theater will also enjoy WIT's improv classes, because they're just that fun.
Through a variety of fun games, exploratory exercises, and dramatic play, students tap into their natural creativity, build their self-confidence, improve their communication skills and learn to work collaboratively - all while having such a great time that they'll never suspect how much they're learning! All of WIT's youth students have the chance to showcase their new abilities during a performance for friends and family at the end of the last class.
Visit WIT's website for full class descriptions, teachers' bios and testimonials, plus a current schedule. Classes are usually held at the Children's Studio School at 1301 V St NW, on the corner of 13th and V Street NW. The school is located one block north of the U Street-Cardozo Metro Station (13th Street Exit), and the main entrance is on V Street.
