Do you ever feel like your funny bone is broken? Terminally serious? In need of a good belly laugh? If so, we have the remedy and the cure! Join us for an adventure into the unknown where you’ll rediscover your funny bone and deeper facets of yourself while just having some plain ol’ fun.

There’s no script in life, so we are all improvisors! Improv requires spontaneity – we “make it up as we go along.” Although laughter and fun are guaranteed, you’ll simultaneously learn lifelong skills. You’ll participate in games and short scenes that will help you focus, retain information, concentrate, stay in the moment, take risks, listen to others, communicate clearly, work as part of a team and respond quickly and creatively in ANY situation. In a relaxed, supportive environment, you’ll gain important life skills and also gain confidence, learn to trust yourself and others more and become a better communicator.
