Improv session!

the following is copied from the already-existing invitation for this event: https://www.facebook.com/events/133223260222162/

We're keeping advice and circle games to a bare minimum lately, and loving the outcome. You'll get basic instruction for each exercise, then everyone will have a go at it two or three times. As more of you come into the room, we'll move to scenes that can employ three players, to keep everyone active.

Every 30min or so you'll do a couple quick warmups, then get right back into scenes. We like to wrap up with a Bat or a jam or both.

You'll wanna wear whatever clothes are best for aggressive, jaguar-brained improvising.

Donations of a few bucks are greatly appreciated and are applied directly to room rental, air conditioning.

    Six people besides myself had performed improv for varying years. So many new faces. Most were eager to participate and play. Some were more timid than others, but if you're new to improv it can look like everyone else knows what they're doing.

    Who can make it to an Improv Meetup Sunday July 28th in Manayunk?

    Merge Dance Studio in Manayunk is available for rental this Sunday, July 28th, or Saturday August 10. It only costs $15 per hour. My family is planning a get together for sometime in those dates, so I don't know my availability, but otherwise I'd like to attend a meeting or help arrange one.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
