Bring Your Own Improv and the Warwick Center for the Arts have a common interest in educating youth. It is with that in mind that we created a program in 2014 for teens, to teach them improv as well as self-confidence and problem-solving skills, which we call the BYOI Youth Collective.

The Youth Collective meets every Friday at 5:30 pm at the Warwick Center for the Arts. For each two month session, youth take four weeks of workshops followed immediately by four weeks of shows. This two-month session may be repeated as many times as the youth would like until they age out. Each group will be evaluated on their skills in the first workshop and that will determine the level of skills they will learn in that session.

Youth must be between the ages of 12 and 18 and no previous experience is required. Our sessions are split into two age groups for improved learning and a better social environment. Parental permission is required. The $245 fee must be paid in order to hold a youth’s spot. The workshops include lessons, the shows and free admission to the 7:00 pm shows for participants.

WCFA Members may purchase the workshops at a rate of $195. Memberships are $35 for an individual and $50 for a family of four. Please contact us about becoming a WCFA Member today.

 Meditation sessions with Paulette’s guidance provide a welcome relief from my very busy life. A moment to connect with others and myself to reflect on kindness and self acceptance in a non judgmental and beautiful setting at WCFA. VG
