Functional Improv™ – Drop-in Online Improv Class for Everyday Life
Are you not a performer at heart? This drop-in improv class was made for you. Or are you missing the connection of an improv class? Join us on Sunday afternoons to reconnect and reinvest in the community with some improv exercises that remind us to be human in these difficult times. It’s improv that’s not geared for the stage, instead it’s improv geared for everyday life.
If you’re not a fan of standing on stage and performing in a show or with a team, this drop-in improv-based workshop is perfect for you. While it has its roots in improvisation for the theater, we change the dynamic and the conversation to focus more on self growth, dealing with everyday life issues, and learning more about ourselves.
Topics covered in a typical workshop could include many different themes: communication skills, active listening, empathy, knowing yourself, trusting others, failure, overthinking, anxiety, being a team player, trusting yourself, saying yes, reading a room and knowing where you fit, and so much more. And of course, on top of working on ourselves, you’ll learn what many improvisers and theatre kids have known is the secret sauce in these types of group settings: the connection and vulnerability with others will help you feel less alone and more supported knowing you’re a part of something bigger.
As always, it’ll be hosted by Natalie Shipman and Ryan Neufeld. We’ve missed you. We are excited to hear from you. Come with no expectations, and we hope you’ll leave feeling a little better than when you arrived.
