Laughing With Me! - Improv workshops with Michael O’Keefe (Ages 8-12)

Apr 8

Laughing With Me! - Improv workshops with Michael O’Keefe (Ages 8-12) 

Pollak Theatre - 10 AM

Laughing With Me! is the ASD program that is filled with fast-paced, interactive fun!! Students think of communication issues like a game!! They will become flexible within these experiences. The outcome being that now they won’t break, but simply bend. They also learn that it’s OK to fail. It’s simply a part of life that’s ultimately not a big deal. Also, a common occurrence of the program is an understanding of a special kind of laughter that gives a boost to self-confidence and creates a feeling of camaraderie. This is called “earned laughter”, because the students realize that they have done something funny on purpose, in a setting that promotes and encourages that behavior. Delve into the ASD workshop where we look at how we handle what comes our way - expected or not! Add in the great fun and team spirit built into our games. We'll be playing with both our strengths and our quirks. Your child is set for laughter and learning! FREE, but registration is required.
