Frontier Academy RVA: Improv to Improve
Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
The Inseparable Partnership of Business and Comedy
In this 2-hour workshop participants work with Dave Gau, Artistic Director of ComedySportz Richmond, to acquire an enhanced skill set based on the techniques utilized in improv comedy.
Far from the terrifying abyss of ambiguity that many people assume it to be, the world of improvisation is simply one in which the practitioners are comfortable changing directions rapidly, sometimes instantly, in the pursuit of communal creation and support. Improv creates an environment in which we are not afraid to take risks, an can our individual talents to make our entire team shine.
We’ll cover the basic principles of:
- "yes, and"
- being in the moment
- working as a team
- clear, multi-level communication
Participants will learn to think faster, be more open minded, and come to terms with a lack of control in uncertain environments - and then be able to build something great.
Plus, they’ll have a ton of fun in the process. Laughter is guaranteed.
