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.

BANGKOK — Elephants are Thailand's national animal, so it's only natural that King Mongkut in 1861 offered to send a pair to the United States as a gift of a friendship that has endured 200 years. President Abraham Lincoln, likely bemused and relieved at the distraction from America's then-raging Civil War, politely declined, saying his country uses the steam engine and would have no use for the working animals. As part of the anniversary celebrating the long-lasting relationship, the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok is showcasing historic gifts the two countries have exchanged on the grounds of Thailand's Grand Palace.

Group: Public in dark about cell tower plans in Grand Teton

Mar 24, 2018

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Grand Teton National Park has inappropriately prevented the public from learning about tentative plans for more than 50 miles of fiber-optic cable and new cellphone towers at 11 locations in the majestic preserve in Wyoming, an environmental group says. Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility says it obtained a document through the Freedom of Information Act detailing the plan at the foot of the Teton Range. The group's executive director, Jeff Ruch, said Friday there's been a pattern of national parks such as Yosemite and Great Smoky Mountains allowing new towers with little or no public notice.
