Does the idea of performing in front of people scare the dickens out of you?
Have you ever watched improv and thought, "I could never do that!"?
Have you ever watched improv and thought, "Hell, I could definitely do that!"?
Do you not give a flying fig about improv comedy but want to become more confident speaking in public and more mindful in the moment?
Are you curious about improv but you don't consider yourself a scaredy cat?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, "Improv for Scaredy Cats (And Non-Scaredy Cats Too!)" is the workshop for you. It's designed especially for folks who want to try something that might scare them. (It's cheaper than sky-diving and less likely for you to end up as road-pizza!)
You'll learn a very gentle, very easy approach to improv comedy in an incredibly positive and accepting atmosphere in which the only way you can fail is by failing to learn something new. We'll practice the vital improvisation skills, like:
* listening carefully
* accepting other people's ideas
* redefining and disempowering failure
* staying in the moment
* reacting honestly to the reality of the here and now.
No experience necessary. Being funny is NOT required.
Go ahead, register now before you chicken out or get distracted by a cute kitten video. (Kittens!) This workshop will be a wadzillion times less scary than you think. The only thing you have to lose is your opinion that you can't improvise...
