Mask requirements are up to date and in accourdance with Jefferson County, CO. At this time, masks are NOT rquired. I leave it up to each individual to wear a mask or not. I will keep students up to date with any changes to the current requirements. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Gifts of Improv II A next step beginner level or refresher opportunity!

Continuing with the basics, we discover even more life lessons improv has to offer! We play fun games that facilitate additional insights to the correlation between everyday life and improv. These give a solid foundation to anyone wanting to be more present, connected, and spontaneous in life on OR off the stage. We play more group games that sprinkle in a bit more challenge. I'll get you good and ready for them. They are easy going, fun, AND powerful. Get your FUN on!

Great as a refresher class, too!
