For 8 weeks in the autumn of 2017, CSz Philadelphia held an after-school improv workshop for 5th and 6th grade students at the Russell Byers Charter School in Philadelphia. The workshop focused on the basics of improv, teamwork, listening and taking risks. At the end of the 8 weeks, the students then did a performance for, what was supposed to be their families.
We'll let the Instructor Josh-Holober Ward take it from here:
"They got to perform in front of about 80 of their classmates and a group of teachers, and they did a phenomenal job. They were SUPER nervous beforehand, but the moment they got up there and heard their classmates cheering for them (the love and support in that school is insane) they were naturals."
