Remember when we were kids and we used to play, engage, create, explore and pretend? We weren't stressed out or checking our phones, and, we loved to connect in person. This meet-up offers grown-ups just that - recess - because it's not just kids that benefit from play. We'll enjoy the art of play via improvisation, laughter yoga and mindfulness exercises. We'll check our devices at the door in order to authentically, joyfully and intentionally interact with those around us using the one thing that brings us all together - laughter! Who knows what adventures might unfold as we immerse ourselves in cooperative, unscripted play?
Throughout this 6-week introduction class, students will explore the basic concepts of improvisation in a warm, safe and supportive environment. The class is designed to build self-confidence and explore creativity using the fundamentals of improvisation. Designed for both actors and non-actors, it will expose students to:
* Being – and reacting - in the moment.
* Accepting and building on gifts from other classmates.
* Embracing – and using - failure.
* Co-creating with others (listening, communicating, giving & taking focus).
* Thriving in an unscripted environment.
Students leaving this course will have a working understanding of the basic fundamentals of improvisational theater as well as an increased appreciation, and comfort, with being on stage without a script.
