Brooklyn NY K-12 School Assembly Improv Program Discount

EMAIL us today about dates/rates for assemblies, PTA nights, workshops, after school residencies, professional development for teachers and FIELD TRIPS to our Times Square theater.

What does this mean for EVERY Brooklyn School? We have three amazing Improv Comics in the boro AND we can now offer huge discounts on assemblies and workshops Tuesday mornings.

Brooklyn K-12 School Assembly Discount

We charge schools nation wide $800 for one show. NYC Schools usually pay $500-600/show. But now, every Tuesday morning we can send a show to any Brooklyn School for as little as $300; Or $750 for THREE consecutive morning hours of shows & workshops (reg $1200-2000).

We have presented 300-500 shows for K-12/Family audiences yearly since 2004. Fimd out why 5000+ audiences love this show.

“A production you and your children don’t want to miss” ABC NEWS

Every show by Improv 4 Kids / Improv 4 Teens includes 2-4 songs, 2-4 interactive games with audience participation on stage and additional scene games. Every 3-5 minutes the MC is interacting with the audience to get ideas for scenes and songs. No two shows are every the same. We can also steer the stories and songs toward a theme that fits your school’s agenda for the year. In past we have worked well with PARP and other pro reading programs, Anti-Bully, SEL, Story telling / Language Arts, Cultural Arts Music and Theater, and more. But our greatest value is providing laughter, which reduces stretch and makes school a fun place. Laughter in the classroom increases test scores and mental/physical health of students and staff.

Our workshops further the educational value, getting students up on their feet to play a series of games that teach creativity (writing and critical thinking), community (team, respect, listening, eye contact) and leadership (self confidence and public speaking). Improv is the most fun way to develop a student body confident to participate in class, which leads to better learning and testing.

After School or In School Residencies

look similar to our public programs. Our teachers work with a smaller group of students working towards a performance showcase. Compared to a typical theater program, EVERY student is a star and gets equal stage time to develop these valuable life skills. Most plays and musicals benefit a small group, depending on a larger group to play ensemble or work tech. Improv utilizes every student. Every member of the team is valued and gets a chance to shine.

We also have residency programs that will send a teaching artist to EVERY class in the school to introduce concepts of YES And, listening, public speaking and more to every student. We often pair this with professional development.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT for TEACHERS

by Improv Theater LLC is both Corporate style Team Building and offers valuable techniques  for the class room. We find many teachers lack the self confidence to lead a class. Every team is only as strong as its weakest link.  Improv can be used to role play historical and literary characters. We show teachers how to use games in the classroom to get students focused and break the tension before a big math or science test. And Improv gets the staff laughing together, breaking down walls or resentments and insecurity and building strong bonds. In addition to many K-12 schools, we have worked with teams from 100s of corporations including Twitter, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Louis Vuitton, Coach, BDO, Home Depot and even US Medicare Accountants.
