Aragon Improv

2017 – 2018 AIT: Aragon Improv Team

Improv is the art of creating stories from nothing. Every show is unique, never seen before and never to be seen again, and each performance is born from the collaboration of the players on stage. Throughout the year, students practice skills such as listening, paying attention to details, and “Yes and-ing” ideas to build this collaboration. The goal is to cultivate a positive and playful environment in which students can explore improvisational storytelling.
