Program Description


Improv = fun + infinite possibilities! This ensemble-based workshop is a safe virtual space to imagine possibilities, explore how to perform and create a variety of characters that crack you up. Spend a week with an ensemble of young improvisers, while learning techniques and practices to help you stay present, truthful and connected.

*Please note: Session 2 will not be duplicative with Session 1 (July 13-17) so if you love Improv sign up for both weeks! We will work on completely different material in the two sessions.


  • In lieu of BAL’s traditional shared performance, students will be included in a video reel showcasing highlights and vignettes from the week’s online collaborations.
  • A direct link to the video(s) will be provided to share with friends and family.
  • Please allow reasonable time after the session ends for professional production and editing.
