Bad Dog Theatre Youth Improv and Family Open HouseSunday, February 07, 2010
Here is a press release I just received that interested me. I think both Toronto teachers and Toronto moms (and dads) might find it just as interesting. If you're in the Halton region, check out the last paragraph. (All the information that I was sent is quoted below.)
“My 15-year-old son will do ANYTHING in his power, not to miss a class! That says it all!”
-Parent, Teen FoundationPlus Class, Spring 2008
“I am so happy to have found Bad Dog Theatre!! My son has started the youth improv class and absolutely loves it. Not only has he learned new skills, more importantly he has had fun and found his self-confidence. He laughs, smiles and tells me all the time about how great his improv class is.”
-Parent, Youth Foundation Series, Spring 2008
“My son is 9 years old and absolutely loving the program. He was apprehensive at first because he did not understand what improv was about...now he knows that it's all about fun! I cannot recommend it enough!”
-Parent, Kids Foundation Class, Spring 2008
A not-for-profit charitable corporation, Bad Dog Theatre strives to perform and develop the best possiblt improvisational comedy in Ontario. Born as Theatresports Toronto, Bad Dog Theatre Company established its permanent home at 138 Danofrth Avenue in 2003 and boasts the second largest improv training school in Canada.
As the “improv hub of Toronto” (NOW Magazine), Bad Dog Theatre offers affordable improvised shows five nights a week, ranging from student shows to critically-acclaimed improvised serials, including the 2009 Canadian Comedy Award nominee BattleAwesome AwesomeStar.
In addition to offering adult classes for all levels of improvisers, Bad Dog Theatre is committed to giving youth the opportunity to experience improv through our Youth Improv Series for students aged 5 – 18. The theatre also offers corporate teambuilding and educational workshops and has recently expanded to include Bad Dog Oakville—a satellite program for youth and adults in the Halton area.
