Improv refers to inventing, composing, or performing with little or no preparation. Do you or your clients ever face unpredictable and stressful situations where things have not gone as planned or where thinking on your feet is needed? The practice of improv helps coaches and their clients prepare for these situations. This dynamic program will look at basic principles of improv and engage in a series of participant exercises for learning and fun!

New Policy for people who are “no-shows”
Since we have terrific programs scheduled for this year, we want to provide an opportunity for as many attendees as possible. To enable us to fill openings please email me at least before 10 a.m. the day of the meeting, Tuesday, if you will not be able to attend so I can contact those who email that day to be on the waiting list. From now on those who are 'no-shows' will be placed on the waiting list for future meetings until we have openings. If you contact me after 10 a.m. I may still be able to fill your opening although it doesn't provide much notice for those on the waiting list.
Cancellation policy: If session is cancelled Peggy Linden will send out an email announcement. If schools or libraries are closed this meeting will be cancelled also.
