This week on Yes But Why, we talk to Italy-based improviser and educator, Leah Dawson.
Leah Dawson is an elementary school teacher at an international school in Italy. Leah is also an active member of the improv scene at Teatribù in Milan. We connected on an international improv Facebook group. Leah weaves improv games into her daily lessons to keep her students engaged and we bonded when she advised me on an improv class I was teaching for elementary aged children. It was great to talk to Leah about how she got involved in improv and how it has helped her to be a better teacher.
In our conversation, Leah tells me how space camp got her out of US public schools and into an Italian international school. Leah tells the story of the chance meeting at brunch that inspired her interest in theater. And Leah regales me with quite a few funny tales about how she is still using improv to help her with speaking Italian!
Support Leah by taking an impro class with her. She has a unique perspective that will help you get better at your craft! Leah will be offering an impro in English class. Anyone interested should email EnglishImprovItaly@gmail.com
