Workshop Details

Activate your imagination, creativity, and spontaneity. Just as muscles can tighten with stress and age, so can notions about ourselves. One antidote to this natural process is improvisational workouts. Children stretch their sense of self through the powerful medium of play. Adults often don’t, finding it too scary or foolish. This unwillingness prevents them from experiencing this potent learning tool, which includes the permission to try new ways of being without the serious consequences of real life. In this positive workshop, participants are guided through simple improv exercises aimed at personal expansion. Using the tenets of improv, such as trust and spontaneity, participants are encouraged to say “Yes” to situations offered to them by the group. This workshop also explores one of improv’s most compelling tools: status, the human pecking order. Participants familiarize themselves with the subtle clues they send and receive defining their status, and have a chance to try new body language and status choices. Rejuvenate your spirit through experiential play and laughter. Past participants have said, “By stretching myself, I’ve become more of me” and “It’s more fun than a ride on a fire truck!”
