Improv4Work: Corporate Training & Events

Fun is on the other side of “Yes!”

American Stage Improv offers a range of workshops and events promoting creativity, collaboration and communication within your company.

These innovative sessions rely on participation, using the fundamentals of basic theatre and improvisation techniques. Simple games and activities positively introduce and reinforce a creative approach to business and productivity. Workshops are conducted in a relaxed and entertaining setting, emphasizing creativity and playfulness. All participants can feel comfortable knowing that they will not be expected to “perform.” That is, unless they want to!

Our corporate trainers come from artistic and business backgrounds and understand the challenges that face many organizations. By facilitating activities and discussions that encourage and inspire creativity, participants gain a durable set of experiences they can use in their day-to-day work environment.

Why Improv? 

Simply put, “improv” is the art of creating something out of nothing. By saying “Yes, and…” to the ideas of others, we soar to unexpected heights. Improvised theatre is entertainment made up on the fly. It is unscripted, unrehearsed and full of surprises!
