Outreach shows and workshops available at your venue or bring your group to our Times
Square Theater. Improv classes are a must for any up and coming performer. These
classes also provide invaluable training for any young adult. Training in Improvisation
teaches self confidence, communications skills (public speaking, one on one
conversation skills, listening, eye contact), team work, leadership and creative writing.
Major Corporatations hire our teachers to remind their top execs andteams the
importance of good communication. Our goal is to impart this wisdom on youth before
entering the work force.
For performers looking to make their mark in the industry, especially the New York
market, Improvisation has become one of the cornerstones of casting commercials and
TV jobs. With lack of rehearsal time, casting directors love an actor that can act on a
dime with very little time and direction. Improv treaining adds to your skill sets and gets
you noticed at auditions.Improv training and performance on your resume gets your
materials to the top of the pile. Furthermore, many NYC casting experts will send their
notices to us specifically looking for our staff to audition.

â€œOMG it was awesome! Truly one of the best activities Iâ€™ve ever seen take place
here at Summit! We gave them a very large group of kids to work with, and they handled
them wonderfully. The way that they related to the kids was terrific, and the activities they
led worked on so many pragmatic language skills in SUCH an effective way, including
increasing the kidsâ€™ awareness of their bodies in space, body proximity, eye contact,
voice, and generally how others perceive them from their non-verbal cues. They also did
word association and one-word stories that involved verbal expression and required kids
to follow a story line. Almost all of the kids looked like they were having a fantastic time,
and it was an activity where the shy kids could get to interact with others in a very
structured (hence comfortable) way. At the end I spoke to the three members of the improv
group and raved about how great they were and told them the specific ways that the
activities helped our students. They asked me a number of questions, such as regarding
how to handle various studentsâ€™ behaviors, and we talked about upcoming activities.â

Our shows are the coolest way to inspireâ€¦
Our workshops are the coolest way to introduceâ€¦
Our residencies are the coolest way to developâ€¦
Our Professional Development helps your staff build the futureâ
In addition to being great a cultural arts experience, Improv shows,
workshops and residencies are the coolest way to get students excited
about and teach creativity (writing and thinking out of the box),
community (communications, respect, listening, focus, eye contact), and
leadership (public speaking, self-confidence).
SHOWS â€“ Our cast presents original music and skits created on the
spot based on audience suggestions and participation. The shows are
so much fun, the students donâ€™t even realize the valuable skills they
are learning. Our study guides help teachers prepare students before
and follow up with important concepts following the program.
WORKSHOPS â€“ 45-60 minutes of fun playing team building and
storytelling games that warm up the mind and body to create and work
together. These workshops get the students on their feet developing
exposition (WHO & WHERE) and rising action (WHAT) for original
stories. Students are asked to project and speak clearly so the whole
class can hear. YES AND is the main focus, supporting your
RESIDENCIES â€“ 20-hour (one-ten weeks, 2-5 hour sessions)
programs prepare a group of students to perform their own show,
diving much deeper into performing and creative concepts. Each
session begins with warm-up and team activities. Students learn 5-10
classic games for performance. Students also share stories of the life
that we develop in to comedy monologues. Our teachers tie in
everything we do to writing reports and other activities for everyday
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT â€“ Our Improv Workshops
for teachers serve a dual purpose. Team building for your staff AND
providing teachers valuable tools to continue the work we begin. A
team that enjoys working together gets things done!
