Eliminate "stage fright" from your live. Let's remember one thing: Life is improvised -- no script; no rehearsal; no cue cards. A common perception is that improv players on stage are just "making things up." The reality is there are rules to successful improvisation. Applying the unique rules and exceptional tools of Stage-Improv creates amazing Life-Improv accomplishment -- with Empowering Results in both a personal and business surroundings.
After decades of performing Improvisational Theater, and acting and directing stage and television, I host Improv For Life, taking the principles of Improvisational Theater from stage and applying them to life, because, as noted, our lives are also completely improvised and unrehearsed. As a teaching artist, I specialize in UNIVERSITIES, SCHOOLS, CORPORATE EVENTS and PRIVATE EVENTS. Through humor, videos and experience, I teach and empower participants to apply these liberating tangible tools to daily obstacles and stresses, heightening critical thinking free from judgement. Audience members may become improv players through fun, powerful and revealing games and exercises. From playing and listening come benefits to apply to each stage of life - work, academic and personal. And, I confess, there can be a fair amount of laughs ..!!
I have loved interacting with people while being on and off stage. I've done it well my entire career. Now I'm loving passing on knowledge acquired during a successful life and career. My second choice in life, after entertainment, was teaching. And now I am doing them both! It's very exciting ...
