Youth Summer Camp - June 9-13
Youth Summer Camp - July 7-11
We had a GREAT Improv Camp this summer
and oh man, did we have a BLAST!
Youth (ages 10-17) from all over the Valley
came ready to have a great time &
JesterZ Improv was prepared to make that happen!
The week long camp focused on the fundamentals of improv
and was packed with games and exercises
to get these young adults more comfortable on stage
and collaborating as a group.
Some kids came with experience while others
had never even been on a stage before,
but by the end of camp you’d never be able to guess which was which!
The youth worked in pairs and groups to practice improv basics like:
validating your partner’s ideas while also contributing your ideas
responding honestly to what is said to you
instead of thinking of what you’ll say next
basing scenes on exploring different relationships
rather than “stuff and things”
Each of these prepares them not only to be successful in scenes,
but also in real life!
They also learned to push the boundaries of their own creativity,
maximizing their skill set while stepping outside of their comfort zone.
Many of the teens were surprised to find they were
able to morph into different characters
and adapt to various settings more successfully than they imagined!
The teens had a blast playing with props and
learning to think outside the box!
We were constantly amazed with the ideas they were able to come up with!
They’re so smart and funny!
Everyday we created a safe place for creativity,
where no one was allowed to judge each other so that everyone
was allowed to have the most fun they possibly could.
The teens were so receptive to showing respect for one another
and the support they learned to show each other
on and off stage was truly inspiring!
On the last day of camp, we had a showcase for all the parents
to come, kick back and be amazed at their kids’ genius!
The teens learned how to perform in a standard improv show
in front of an audience and the show was a hit! Nonstop laughs!
With a different mix of learning, creating, playing and performing everyday,
we didn’t let these kids have one second of boredom!
We couldn’t be prouder of how they excelled in only one week of training!
