Wait a Minute..Should I Choose Acting or Improv?

 
We believe it’s important to know what are the main differences between Acting and Improv Theater, in order to join one of our theater courses:
1. Acting teaches you how to express yourself honestly and confidently in many different situations and roles. Improv teaches you how to be yourself and tap into spontaneity.

2. Improv helps you to connect with others, while Acting helps you connect with your emotions and thoughts in the way you express yourself physically.

Both Acting and Improv can boost your confidence, improve your listening and communication skills and level up your ability to actively and openly communicate with the world around you.
