Funlicious - Improv for Kids:
Funlicious is the Covert Theatre’s school holiday program and is the ideal place for your child to develop their confidence and emotional intelligence and have loads of FUN doing it! There's a reason improvisation now has a place at Stanford University Business School - because improv promotes not just quick and agile thinking, but important life skills such as self-awareness, collaboration, freedom from judgement and storytelling. Team dynamics are at the forefront without letting go of that playful mindset.
Designed by Wade Jackson, artistic director of the Covert Theatre, the School Holiday Program is also a safe way to venture into the world of performing arts. This program is suitable for children with all levels of experience.
