Improv for Introverts with Mary Harvey

Sunday, June 12, 2022 - 10:00am to 1:00pm
The Malting Tower
Mary Harvey

Improv for Introverts introduces the fundamentals of improv in a relaxed, low-pressure, and laughter-filled environment. Through exploring improvisational exercises, introverts are empowered to build conversational skills, think faster on their feet, and trust their instincts. If you’ve ever left a conversation and kicked yourself for not saying the right thing, or helped with the dishes at a party to avoid small talk, this workshop just might be for you! You will laugh, have fun, and learn a little something about yourself to help you through those challenging conversations.

This workshop will focus on smaller group interactions and improvisational games rather than performances or large-group activities. We will facilitate a maximum of fourteen participants. Join us for this exploration of "gentle improv".


Location: Tett Centre Malting Tower, 3rd floor Lakeside

Time: 10AM–1PM

Tickets: $35 + HST/fees
