Comedic Improv for Beginners with Aanmitaagzi

Location: Vinyasa Yoga Studio – 352 Algonquin Avenue
Admission: Pay-What-You-Can
Max. Participants: 20

Comedic improv is a great way to release your inner storyteller and have some fun! It teaches you how to think on your feet and work collaboratively while honing your listening skills and group awareness. In this workshop, participants will engage in improv ice breakers and warm-ups and will then be led through a series of introductory improv exercises and games. Principles of play, spontaneity, and listening, as well as making and accepting offers will also be explored.

Revisiting imaginative play can be intimidating but participants will have the opportunity to take risks in a nurturing environment. We will examine the basic elements of improv: the performer / improviser, their environment, their scene partners, the story / plot, and the audience. Participants will learn how to tell a story focusing on creating and establishing their environments and characters, developing conflict, and finding resolutions.

This workshop is intended for beginners of all ages and abilities or as a chance to revisit the fundamentals.
