“It’s Boost-ed (haha) my confidence, the ability to think on my feet, and being able to feel comfortable in unfamiliar situations.” - Imogen, 15

Holiday Boost Improv: 13–17 years Life: Confidence. Creativity. Connection.

Our Holiday Boost improv workshop for teenagers blends drama with exciting improv games and skills and are the ideal escape from school, study and stres—a safe space to play and just ‘be’.

Research has shown improvisation can help young people better cope with change, increase their social skills and reduce aggression, amongst other benefits, and Just Improvise’s Boost: Improv for Teens workshops are underpinned by our powerful Hive of Nine Be’s philosophy, teaching core ideas such as:

- the power of a positive mindset (Be Positive)
- supporting teenagers to be – and trust – themselves (Be Yourself)
- reframing ‘failure’ as a learning opportunity (Be Kind)
- embracing the ideas of others (Be Playful)
- enhancing ‘in the moment’ decision making (Be Present)
- celebrating imperfection (Be Imperfect)
- learning how to ‘bounce back’ when life gets tough (Be Flexible)
- committing completely to help ideas fly (Be Bold)
- seek to understand rather than judge (Be Changed)

The workshop is created by Glenn Hall, Just Improvise co-founder and WA Academy of Performing Arts improv lecturer. Glenn has been teaching and performing improv internationally for more than 20 years including helping to guide the careers of or performing with successful actors and comedians including:

- Tim Minchin (Matilda The Musical, Californication, Jesus Christ Superstar)
- Natalie Locke (Nova 93.7)
- Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys, Suicide Squad, The Water Diviner)
- Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers, A Few Less Men)

Just Improvise utilises process driven drama, reducing the pressure from students to have to ‘perform’ or ‘get it right’. Improvisation is a process, where the product is created continuously. Parents and care-givers are invited to observe the last class of term, for more of an insight into this process and its over-arching benefits.

Class sizes are kept small to allow us tailor the workshop to the group’s unique needs.
