Little Forks - Improv classes for Primary School Students

Occurs every week on Saturday

Improv is a whole lot of fun and the perfect way to kick off the weekend!

Students will explore the basic principles of improvisation in a fun, creative and supportive environment. Improv is perfect for exploring creativity, supporting social skills, and building confidence. No previous acting experience required, it is a low-stress introduction to acting while also a great tool for the budding actor.

Over the 8-week term, students will be introduced to the basic tenets of improvisation such as:
- Agreement
- Creating characters
- Building fantastical worlds
- Working together with other actors
- Storytelling

The course runs for 8 weeks every Saturday morning. Friends and family are invited to attend a portion of the final class where the students will share what they have learned.
This class is for students who are currently in grades 1 through 6. Got a question? Feel free to contact the Directors at training@bigforktheatre.com
Meet your teacher Ben Snaith!
Ben Snaith is a performer with a wide range of experience. He has worked as a touring independent musician, theatre maker, short film maker, performance artist and improviser, getting up in front of audiences for over a decade.
Ben is also an enthusiastic educator, completing a Bachelor of Education (Prep-Yr 12) with an Upper Years major in Performing Arts. He has also spent the last 4 years as a kindergarten teacher.
Taking a break from full time teaching, Ben is excited to facilitate Primary and Secondary-aged classes in Improv and Performance for Big Fork Theatre. He started to develop ideas for these programs when his production company “Alt City” developed an inter-generational musical improv show called “The Secret Superhero Galaxy-Travelling Family Band Show,” for the Brisbane Improv Festival.
The show focussed on encouraging play, listening skills and for the children in the cast to feel their ideas were as valid as the rest of their cast members and these are some of the guiding ideas Ben will be bringing into these Little Forks classes.
Ben holds a current Blue Card.
