Improv For Anxiety

Mondays beginning October 7,  5:30-7:00pm

Combining improv theatre and relational group work, this class will help you to let go of inhibitions, diminish the impact of judgements,  be more emotionally expressive, live in the moment, be witnessed and valued by others, and expand your perspectives about relationships. This program is best suited for students who are looking for a powerful and non threatening way to relieve stress, build connections with peers, develop self awareness, find an outlet to express feelings in community, reduce social anxiety and/or isolation and to have fun. Students don’t need to have any experience to take this class, however,  experienced improvisors will also benefit from the unique format. There is no expectation that students are funny, just that they are willing to open themselves up in authentic ways in the supportive class setting. The funny will extend from this sincerity.

Cost $175
