Using their outdoor space to practice social distancing while also learning and honing their theatrical skills, students in Ms. Corbo’s theater arts class at High School West took to the softball field to practice their improv skills. Students worked on a few different techniques, acting out different family portraits using just their body language. They also did a slideshow exercise, where one student narrated a story and the others acted it out in different slides.
