Developing an appreciation for physical exercise is important for students, but it isn’t always easy.  Some students don’t feel they are particularly athletic, while others would rather spend their time behind a computer screen.


TheatreFIT is a fun, unique way to get students up, moving and interacting with their peers.  Highwood’s trained improv and movement teachers concentrate on providing a safe environment for students to explore self-expression, teamwork and creativity.  Students have the opportunity to grow artistically while learning to appreciate and enjoy physical fitness.


Our unique and dynamic physical theatre classes emphasize fun, active and healthy creative expression. Our most popular class (Active Theatrics) combines physical improv, stretching, dance, and theatrical movement for a fun, creative, physical mash-up.  Or, you can opt for our most physically intense class, BollyX.  We can also create almost any class to meet your needs. All of our custom classes focus on engaging the students in high-energy activities that will feel more like games than exercises.
