Class Description

Audition for a chance to be on the Improv Team! Only 4–6 students will be accepted onto the team. Each auditioning student will be sent an email asking for their second choice for classes. This needs to be completed before the audition date.

Create drama, humor and stories on the spot. This class will give you the basic principles of improvisation and give you the confidence to embrace everything that is thrown at you when you don't have a script in your hands. Learn team-building skills that will strengthen your ability to play with your partners on stage. In this class that solely focuses on short-form improv, you will learn how to live “in the moment" and confidently say Yes! to anything.

Each CYT Chicago Chapter will bring a team of Improvisers to our Regional Competition, Improvapalooza in January. Teams will go head to head in a battle of wits for a chance to represent CYT Chicago at the national competition, Improvathon held in June in San Diego! Previous improv experience or class is recommended. Some out of class participation may be required. Contact your Class Coordinator for information on audition day and time.

Teacher:


Ben Olson

I have taught and directed for CYT Chicago since the Winter of 2009. I have a B.A. in Youth Ministry/Adolescent Studies and a Minor in Music from Judson University in Elgin, IL. I absolutely love CYT and its mission of bridging together the performing arts and the love of Christ! My teaching credits include many improv/comedy classes, including the coach for the 2014 Improvapalooza Champions Aurora team. I also teach drama classes ranging from beginner to advanced scene study, and some voice & musical theater as well. In the summer of 2019, I began teaching for the brand new Paramount School Of The Arts in Aurora! My lead directing credits include Wizard of Oz (CYT Oak Park), Great American Tall Tales (CYT Oak Park), Grimm Fairy Tales (CYT Kane), Oliver (CYT Oak Park), Charlie Brown (CYT Orland/Will), Hairspray (CYT Oak Park), The Music Man (CYT Aurora), Fiddler on the Roof (CYT Kane), Roger's & Hammerstein's Cinderella (CYT Aurora), James & The Giant Peach (CYT Kenosha), The Music Man (CYT Kenosha), and Annie (CYT Aurora). I am so excited to work & play together in telling great stories and creating vibrant characters.
