  • Join us on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 for the first class of our next 5-week "Improv for Personal and Professional Development" workshop series. Each of the five classes runs for two hours (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.) on Tuesdays at the Back Bay Conference Center in Irvine.  (Note: we will skip Valentines Day, Feb. 14, and resume with class #5 -- graduation night -- on Tuesday, Feb. 21.)

    It's an academically proven fact: Individuals who can quickly and creatively adapt have a competitive advantage, both personally and professionally. The ability to improvise is a valuable skill, regardless of whether you're a business professional, an actor, an entrepreneur, a voice-over artist, a recent college graduate, or anyone focused on personal success.

    A growing number of forward thinking organizations (including Google and Facebook) are training their employees in the same skills that enable a team of improvisational performers to create an unscripted scene on stage.

    Improv classes are a fun, exciting and challenging way to enhance your communication style and discover your unique voice. Improvisers tap into their native creativity, which helps with presentation skills. Improv students learn how to connect confidently with others on the constantly changing stage of life, love and business. Two highly experienced improvisation teachers will lead this workshop.

    Please RSVP ASAP for this 5-week workshop, because seats are limited. This 5-week workshop series normally costs $297. Meetup members save $100 and pay only $197.  All attendees should be age 18 or older. Students will receive a personalized Certificate of Graduation in Improv for Personal and Professional Development.

    If you're not sure if this 5-week Improv for Personal and Professional Development class is right for you, then attend the first of five classes on January 17th as our guest. You can either pay for the full workshop at the end of the class, or say "no thanks."

    TESTIMONIALS from our students:

    Bob and Lee are such dynamic leaders. The environment they create at Advantage Improv is the perfect mix of fun, delight, challenge, safety and teamwork (not to mention funny British accents).

    As a complete beginner to Improv I felt like I was part of the troupe from the onset. The exercises were perfect at connecting the participants and getting us in sync to begin creating improv performances. I learned a lot about myself during the 5-week class. I learned I don't always go all in, but when I do it sets up my teammates for success and we can do anything! I also learned that

    Improv, like dancing, can be truly amazing when the performers are connected by a sense of reciprocity with each other and their audience. I can't wait for the next class!

    Thanks again for an amazing class!

      --  Andy

    As an Eagle Scout I learned that the Scout’s motto is to “always be prepared.” I am quite good at planning the future and/or living in the past. What I have been wanting, though, is to improve being present. Knowing this about me, no less than three of my friends in one month suggested I take a class in improv to help with this goal. Had to be a sign, right?

    Last week I completed 5 weeks of Improv for Personal and Professional Development (IPPD) classes and want to encourage anyone with the same goal to check out Advantage Improv. Bob and Lee developed a program that not only helps you push up and challenge one's comfort zone while also making you feel completely safe. For this reason I also signed up for their NEXT 5-week workshop!

    If this sounds like something you would like to try, I highly recommend it. I was impressed and think you will be as well.

    Lee and Bob were awesome! We had a fun time and learned a lot of cool stuff... loved the "Yes, And..." vs. Yes, But..." exercise. Enjoyed meeting everyone and using our minds dynamically together.

      -- Joe and Helen

    What an incredible class! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and meeting each of you. Thanks Bob & Lee!
