Class Description: 

Come join instructor Josh Nichols, Education Director of RISE Comedy in Denver, to play games, meet new friends, and learn how improvisational skills can benefit your life both onstage and offstage. Join us and discover the power of “Yes, And…” for yourself!

Improvisation is a tool that helps performers, actors, and people of any background or skill set. You will learn how to be truly present, conscious, and in the moment, which can be difficult in today’s society. You will learn how to listen and accept others’ ideas and your own. You will learn to trust yourself and take risks in a safe, supportive environment. And you will learn to play and have fun, just like when you were a kid!
