Intro to Improv Goodness!

Who needs a little holiday season pick-me-up? If you’ve ever wondered if improv is for you, here’s a great opportunity to check it out! (Spoiler: It IS for you.) Classes are for anybody and everybody, whether you're interested in eventually performing or in just getting out of your own way.

Working through shyness, learning to communicate in new ways, patience, listening, generosity...and a hefty measure of laughter. All these and more are benefits of doing improv.

For those with little or no experience, this introductory one-time class will consist primarily of games and exercises that are playful and engaging—getting us out of our judging minds and into the moment. Within these games we will discover some of the basic, foundational elements that make improv work.

You might like it so much you’ll want to sign up for our next 6-week series starting in January!

Improv for Introverts

Have you heard a lot about how fun improv is and how much value it can add to your life and thought, too bad I can’t do that? This might be the introduction for you if you are intrigued by what you’ve heard but have been intimidated by any of the following:

  • I don’t like attention

  • I can’t compete with “funny”

  • I’m not fast/loud/clever

  • I don’t like groups

Now consider these benefits:

  • Lose self-consciousness

  • Trust yourself

  • Open to your unique creative flow

  • Connect with others

  • Laugh a lot

While the improv foundations remain the same (see Intro to Improv Goodness!) and our classes in general are meant to be a safe space for discovery, our approach will be tailored for those of us who need a little more time to get out of our shells.

The instructor herself is an introvert who learned over time through improv how to work with her own sensitivities and to gradually take more risks, and she considers improv a pivotal force in altering her perceptions of who she is and what she’s capable of.

Beginning Improv: Exploration (6 weeks)

For those who wish to discover what the magic of improv can do for them and what they can bring to it, this class series is like our Intro, only explored in more depth over a 6-week period, allowing us to start building a foundation of understanding and ease.

The series will be full of games and exercises that get us out of our heads and over ourselves, teach us to fail cheerfully, and have ridiculous fun doing so — all while beginning to create scenes and learning the basic elements that make improv work.

We will also dispel the myths that you have to be quick or outgoing to do improv; all you need to do is show up, open up and let yourself be a bit silly… then watch your confidence grow in all areas of your life.

Coach: Laura Wachtel

Location: Collective, 961 Gravenstein Hwy. #130, Sebastopol

Class dates: 1/8, 1/15, 1/22, 1/29, 2/5, 2/12

Time: 6:00pm—8:30pm

Cost: $220 incl. fees
