Be a better improvisor, communicator, collaborator, manager, leader, citizen!
I have been delivering Improv training for over 35 years.
The list of former students that have gone on to fame and fortune in the Entertainment Industry is impressive. Many more thousands have gone on to successful careers outside of show business. What they all have in common is, everyday, they use fundamental improv tools to succeed.
Developing improv skills is really developing effective communication skills such as active listening, sending and receiving messages, focus and non-verbal communication. Improvisers are very good at supporting others, being creative, solving problems and staying positive.
I create a safe and nurturing environment in which participants can step outside their comfort zone and experience the impact of these new skills.
The key to the success of our improv workshops is they’re FUN!
For you and your team, in-class or online, designed to meet your needs
Intro to Improv "Drop-In" Workshop
If you’re just not sure studying improv will help you, (trust me it will) then I have a weekly drop-in intro to Improv. It's a 90 minute collaborative intro to the fundamental skills of improv. I am careful to create a brave and nurturing environment where participants can step outside of their comfort zone and not feel judged. You don’t have to be funny or quick witted. The funny will take care of itself. Watch for dates and times soon.
