      Improv games are a great way to loosen up during drama practice or to break the ice at a party. Improvisational acting teaches you to think quickly and to read other people as you perform. You'll also sharpen your wit as you learn how to react to your audience. Existing drama activities were geared toward older performers. The songs were too difficult and scripts were way too long. So I started adapting games, editing songs, and writing my own scripts. I wanted my younger students to practice valuable theatre skills, learn to be responsible actors, and perform a real show with lines and solos.

    Collection of Drama Lessons about the Rainforests. With older students, you can make the game more challenging in a couple of ways: Zoo. It needs a biggish group (more than 8 or ten) to work really well, and actually works best if there are some adults in the group. (I did it on Parents' Day this year, with great success.) Discussion. These party games for adults will keep your guests happy, entertained, and laughing all the way to the end. It will truly be a party that your guests won't soon forget. There's a great mix of classic and unique party games here that are just for the adults.

    For many older adults, growing older seems to involve an inevitable loss of strength, energy, and vigor. But it need not be so. The frailty and decreased energy we associate with aging, such as difficulty walking for distances, climbing stairs, or carrying groceries, are largely due to muscle loss. This muscle loss results mainly from inactivity.   Whatever the age or personality type, drama encourages children to think creatively and solve problems. In drama classes there's also a focus on working collaboratively, something most kids can benefit from. But many drama-related activities can be incorporated into family and neighborhood life, making them an ideal part of our parent's toolkit!
