What's in It for You

Radical transformation of your team's ability to listen, communicate, speak, hold the attention of their audience, and engage their audience all while deepening their connection with themselves, their breath, and their authentic voice.

What is Applied Improvisation?

As performers, we use our improvisation skills onstage to get people laughing. Conveniently, offstage, we use them to run a successful business. We specialize in teaching people HOW to use improvisation techniques in their work lives. We teach the essential, yet often overlooked or discarded, communication and listening skills that will consistently improve the quality of your work, home and social relationships. We call this Applied Improvisation.
