Brooklyn, United States - August 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

A drama school in Brooklyn has launched a new improv course for children, which can help them to boost their self confidence, courage and self esteem, while improving focus. Called Leif’s Improv Playhouse, the school offers improv and acting classes for kids, alongside other courses available to further develop their skills.

Many children find it difficult to break out of their shell, or retreat into themselves with shyness when confronted with situations that make them uncomfortable. This shyness can follow them through school, and often make it harder for them to make friends.

Sometimes this can simply be a result of them not knowing how to channel their energy into something creative or positive, while other times it can be nervousness and fear of making a fool of themselves.

Taking improv classes at Leif’s in Brooklyn can help children to break out of this cycle, developing their social skills and confidence in a safe, fun, positive and creative environment.

When children take improv courses at Leif’s Improv Playhouse, they are encouraged to explore their creative side, and take chances with their acting and performing. The Playhouse uses improvisational exercises and acting based games to help students discover and develop their creative skills.

The school for acting is open to teens and adults alongside the children’s classes, with a wide range of classes available to suit all tastes. These ongoing or seasonal classes cover improvisation, traditional acting, on camera training, scene study and more.

The school was founded by Leif Riddell, a professional working actor, writer, director and life coach who takes great pride in helping people to develop their acting skills and boost their self esteem and confidence.

Full details of the courses provided at the Brooklyn school for learning improv and acting can be found on the website above, where interested parties can get in touch using the contact details provided and learn more about the modules they’re interested in.

GOP Idaho senator slows huge bill in fight over forest name

Mar 23, 2018

WASHINGTON — The $1.3 trillion spending bill Congress approved early Friday was shaped by battles over major issues like immigration, health care and defense. But one of the last disputes involved a Republican Idaho senator's effort to prevent a wilderness area from being renamed for his state's deceased Democratic governor. In the end, Sen. James Risch lost. But the fight contributed to delays that left senators waiting until after midnight to approve the massive spending package, to the chagrin of some. "It's most like a Saturday Night Live skit," said Sen. Clare McCaskill, D-Mo. "That kind of fight is silly,...

By Diane Bartz and David ShepardsonWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department squared off on Thursday with AT&T Inc in a long anticipated trial, as the two sides disputed whether AT&T's $85 billion purchase of Time Warner Inc would be good for consumers or an expensive drag on innovation.During opening statements, Justice Department lawyer Craig Conrath asked for the deal to be blocked, saying it would hike prices for consumers by more than $400 million annually, or an average of $0.45 a month for pay TV subscribers, by making rival pay TV companies pay more for Time Warner content."Time Warner...
