The Improv Project is a free performing arts program for public school students in the Detroit area. Our teaching artists travel to schools across the Detroit area to teach improv in the classroom. In 2020, we expanded our program to reach students learning online.
The syllabus spans ten weeks and includes time to work on a group project. A team of teaching artists leads each session, using improv games and exercises to cover a specific improv principle. We emphasize working together, being creative, and having fun! There is also time during class for students to reflect on how improv connects to specific life skills like empathy.
