What we're about

"The heart of improvisation is transformation.” -Viola Spolin

We will experiment with activities that shift our focus from creating fear to creating fun thus opening us up to reinventing ourselves and our lives. The activities are a mix of traditional improv games and scenes and activities that engage our body's intelligence for full expression.

Do you want to:

P LAY through your issues instead of working hard on them?

L EARN to use improv as a way to practice creating what you really want?

A CT out your dreams and conjure fun?!

Y ES, AND yourself and discover how self-loving can be a playful, embodied practice in creative expression?

If yes, then join us in improv games and mind/body centering activities as we play and uncover old unconscious patterns and stories. Then we'll apply the simple "Yes, And" rule of improv: We'll say YES to them, and dive in adding humour and fun. Then we'll add the AND to create a new story of our choosing.

Come play with us and begin co-creating your new story!

This class involves moving around a fair bit, but it's not strenuous.

About Me:

Improv has been my go-to practice on stage and off for the past four years. Through this journey, I discovered how much easier it is to use my whole self to transform my experience through play, rather than struggling to “figure things out” with just my brain. I enjoy applying the fundamental improv principle, Yes, And, to my life. I invite you to say YES to what you are creating in your life and to acknowledge yourself as a powerful creator. Then ask… What’s the AND? How can I use what’s here to inspire and create what I really want? I’m a certified Hendricks’ Big Leap Coach and facilitator (http://www.hendricks.com (http://www.hendricks.com/)) and I’ve also been practicing traditional theater improv since 2015, graduating from Seattle’s Unexpected Productions School of Improv (http://www.unexpectedproductions.org (http://www.unexpectedproductions.org/)). I created Play It Out Improv to inspire and empower people to celebrate and improvise with what is, to instantly create what they really want.

I facilitate playshops that mix improv exercises and Hendricks transformational tools to engage our body’s intelligence for maximum fun and full expression.

Experience presence, power and pleasure through play and practice.
