Improv for Special People
On May 8th, 2018, after several weeks of practice, Rising Stars Academy's Blast Off Performing Arts Troupe performed an improv showcase for friends and family. Led by intrepid instructor Erick Terhune, the group showcased their mad improv skills through a series of improv games. These formerly shy and introverted students had a blast showing off their newly won confidence and camaraderie. Improv can help increase confidence, encourage group cooperative behavior, and increase cognitive abilities. It's also fun and engaging, and provides an outlet for socialization.
