Topher Bellavia - Would You Like a Happy Ending with That? (District Improv Festival Workshop)
The thought of getting out onstage is scary sometimes. If you let it overwhelm you, a three things happen. Your personal insecurity leads to fear which leads to anger when you walk onstage. Conflict can be a fun dynamic, but wondrous doors will open if we stop all the fighting. We'll learn to play without anger, argument, pessimism, sarcasm, rejection and fear. We'll embrace positivity, acceptance and joy as the foundations of great improv. I promise that by the end, you'll walk out a happier person and improviser.

Bio: Topher's been making this shit up for 25 years as a performer, teacher, and coach. After dropping his "Acting" major because he couldn't remember any of his lines, Topher began learning and performing improv in earnest as a member of Gag Reflex at Wesleyan University. After moving to DC, he co-founded Washington Improv Theater's (WIT's) improv training program. He oversaw its growth from 10 students annually to more than 1,500 and has taught every level of the curriculum.

Topher has directed WIT improv ensembles Improv Nation, Caveat and onesixone and improv teams Hot & Sweaty, Third Beat, Just Moxie!, The Carmichaels, The Lodge, Charles and Joe, Guys in Plaid Shirts, Isosceles Pyramid, Punctual Drunks, Small Town, Jungle Fever and 35 Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament teams. Topher produced improvised short films with WITfilms for The 48 Hour Film Project, including 2006 National HD Video Challenge winner "Multiverse" and 2010 DC 48HFP winner "Relative."
