AIC holds workshops, classes and summer camps for children ages 5-17. Improv is the perfect opportunity for young people to gain confidence, learn to collaborate with teammates, express themselves creatively, and think outside the box!

In addition to our work in after-school programming in improv and creative drama, AIC holds workshops in character creation, movement/pantomime and stand-up comedy. Our youth curriculum is based on techniques from Viola Spolin and focuses on the process of learning and applying the concepts of improv to our everyday lives.
