We’ll begin with a boundary check-in, where we establish guidelines for respect, trust, and collaboration. Then we’ll dive into engaging improv warmups and games, designed to ignite your imagination, enhance your listening skills, and unlock your spontaneity.

Through interactive exercises and guided scenework, you’ll discover the joy of working together, building on each other’s ideas, and creating compelling scenes on the spot.
