PLAY | ENJOY | LAUGH | IMPROV

HUGE Teen Improv Classes are designed to move participants toward long-form improvisational theater performance while taking significant steps toward personal growth. We playfully focus on ensemble work, listening and communication skills, encouraging mental dexterity, as well as vocal and physical presence on stage. From fundamentals of improv to advanced scene-work, the HUGE Teen Program works toward confidence on stage and off and is suitable for newer and experienced students.

Our teen program instructors provide fun and friendly guidance while applying their practical knowledge as working professionals with years of experience performing long-form improv at HUGE and beyond.

Come play!


SPRING SESSION 2017

Teen ADVANCED – Relationships

If you’ve taken a few classes at HUGE or another institution, and you’ve already practiced the basics of improv theater and are familiar with forms- this class is for you!

In this ten week advanced session we’ll explore how to achieve authentic and meaningful relationships…on stage. We’ll explore status, temperature, gravity, give and take, emotional presence and reaction vs. response while practicing grounded scene-work. Are you ready for this? Yes, yes you are.
Prerequisite: at least three improv classes at any improv theater, performance experience and instructor approval.

Teen BASICS – Beginner/Intermediate

This is where it begins! If you’ve considered trying improv, or if you have some experience and want to strengthen your fundamental skills, this fun and friendly ten week session will dive deep into the basics of improvisational theater: trust, agreement, give and take, and long-form scenes. You are ready for this!

IN-SCHOOL RESIDENCIES and WORKSHOPS with the HUGE Teen Program

“Our biggest struggle as educators of at-risk teens is to give them a feeling of safety that allows for honest expression.   I was overwhelmed in the best way possible. 
Students that have flat-out refused to engage and participate were actively engaged and visibly enjoying it.  I want every single student to see the value in performance art.” – C.E.

We are proud to offer in-school residencies and customized workshops for high-school students throughout Minnesota.

During our residencies, students come together to practice creative problem-solving, teamwork, self-advocacy, flexibility, communication and clarity. They work toward confidence on stage, and off, and learn how to negotiate between playfulness and responsibility while exploring their artistic inclination.

At HUGE, we are dedicated to our educational programs and provide the highest quality improv training available to high-school students. Our program staff are working professional  improvisors as well as experienced teen educators. With a keen focus on providing high quality improv training, our teachers are equally interested in the success of our students in and out of the classroom.

We offer residency programs that are customized to meet the needs of students and the school.
