Description:
In this workshop we will use improv exercises to work on aspects of human interaction, listening, group dynamics, and the improv concept of YES AND. This will be an active, participative, on-your-feet workshop. The focus is on using these exercises to work on and talk about the experience the individuals have playing them, and not on performance or performing comedic improv. We will still have fun, so come join the group and play!
