Improv Offstage: Teachers and Youth Workers Edition

In this 4 night class you will learn to use the secrets of the improviser to up your game as a teacher, educator or youth worker. Let us show you how to be a more effective communicator and performer in the classroom. 
Each week, this two hour class will present you with insightful, fun and effective ways to:

  • Increase your capacity for spontaneous creativity
  • Improve listening and awareness skills
  • Expand your flexibility to maximize response to changing conditions
  • Enhance physical and vocal presence
  • Create a motivating environment
  • Use the energy of performance anxiety to fuel communication

We'll also teach you how to harness the power of storytelling in the classroom and beyond. Stories are a innately human device used to convey understanding and are a powerful tool in your teaching tool belt. We'll highlight your natural, human talent for storytelling and teach your skills and exercises to bring story into your classroom.
