45-60 Minute Workshops

  • Our #1 Rule is to HAVE FUN but never at another’s expense.
  • Improv #1 Rule YES! AND… is all about giving full support to your team, respecting everything they have to offer, who they are, their ideas etc. Psychological Safety is the #1 factor in team success. YES AND… Improv brings Psychological Safety to your community.
  • #1 Skill in Comedy LISTENING Listening with your eyes, listening with the willingness to change. Also the #1 skill in leadership.

Simply playing Improv games develops creativity, critical thinking, public speaking, self confidence, self awareness, listening, focus and more. Self Confident and self Aware students neither display bully or victim behaviors. Our students become leaders and community members. We use the same games to teach corporate groups team, leadership, sales and service.

Even in an all too quick workshop, we see student leap out of their shells. At every session, Teachers and parents remark, “I never expected that student to participate.”

Many students just need that moment, that spark, to realize they are allowed to have fun, and it’s not as scary as they thought to be on stage, taking a few social risks and showing the world what they have to offer. By creating a safe fun space through comedy games, we give many students that first moment of self worth they can take into every other class and the community.
