Improvise.png

In this camp, we’ll work towards learning techniques to improv in French and create our own live show: the Friday Day Live!

From character building to set designing, from costumes to muppets, from storytelling to making people laugh, unleash your imagination, think on your feet and surprise yourself!

A typical day will be built around three synchronous workshops and one independent activity.

  •  9-10am : telling stories

  • 10- 11am  object work

  • 13- 14pm – design a story with Pixton

  • 14 – 15am – act in your story / improv

Where your imagination will take you is hard to predict! Last year, campers created and resolved "Le mystere de la momie" (see video below). But what will happen this year during the Friday Day Live? 

  • Ages 6-10*

  • June 15-19

  • 9am-3pm
