OTC improv has been one of the top vendors for ASEP since its partnership started more than 10 years ago. The OTC program had evolved along with the Essential Standards to emphasize more and more how Movement, Voice, and both Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication can help students in both a fun and informative way. We do this through active games and an informal Q & A with the kids and teachers. The quality of the OTC course can be seen in its growth in the community as well. OTC improv classes for adults and children are so popular that a waiting list is the norm whenever a workshop is held. OTC improv shows are conducted at the Fort Mill Community playhouse and are always sold out. In fact, more than 3,500 people attended their shows last year.
