School Spotlight: Improv Teaches Kids To Collaborate On Comedy
Known for its improv shows and adult classes, Monkey Business Institute is now extending the benefits of the comedy form to children.
Brad Knight, a founder and owner of the Madison group, recently taught improv to a group of 15 youths ages eight to 13. It’s a direction Monkey Business hopes to continue through more classes and a summer camp.
“The biggest thing you can get out of improv is how to work with other people,” said Knight, who was assisted by Mary Conroy, an adult student of his. “With kids, it can build self confidence.”
