Kimee Balmilero to Lead Improv Classes
Balmilero is best known to my kid-filled family for her turn on the live-action musical children’s series “Hi-5” on Discovery Kids, but she was also part of the original Broadway cast for the Abba-fueled “Mamma Mia!” and the second national touring cast of “Miss Saigon.” Last year, she launched “When I Grow Up,” a series she wrote and directed, the latest chapter in a colorful career.
Beginning next Sunday, Nov. 21, she will lead two four-week improv classes, one for kids ages 8-12, and another for teens ages 13-17. There is no experience required, and Balmilero promises a “zero fear,” fun, safe, and supportive environment. After the fourth class, there will be a free showcase for parents and friends.
“Youâ€™ll loosen up and discover that super funny person thatâ€™s living inside your heart,” she writes. “These classes are the perfect little sampling of the improv world.”
The classes cost $100 and you can register online with PayPal. They will be held at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in the Wailana At Waikiki building (1860 Ala Moana Blvd.).
