Improv for Inclusion
ImprovBoston brings an innovative, interactive and highly-acclaimed anti-bullying workshop to students grades 3-8. Building off improvisation’s foundation in support and collaboration, Boston’s best improvisers engage students with equal parts laughter, role-play, problem solving and serious exploration of the many forms of bullying. Students watch and shape improvised scenes tailored directly to the types of negative social behaviors they may be seeing at school, off-campus and online. You tell ImprovBoston what your students are facing; they expertly incorporate your school-specific content into the program, customizing the experience by grade level for multiple engagements. This workshop shows participants that no script in life is pre- written–they have the power to create a positive, supportive, collaborative community.
