My favorite part was performing for my classmates. I liked to make them laugh.

Performing improv with BIG is hilarious! I love to watch my friends perform funny characters in improv scenes.
Student, St. Paul’s School for Girls
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.
