BIG was WONDERFUL! Students moved through the process of learning about Improvisation to performing student-led improv skits during the program. I was able to see them applying the skills of problem-solving, collaboration, teamwork, and perseverance. Bridget and Michael were amazing with the students. They created a climate where students felt safe to take risks in expressing themselves and were accepting of various ideas and perspectives.
