Improv For Anyone! With Corinne Kason 
 

Our very popular Improv Class is back. The summer session runs October 22nd - November 26th. We welcome new players, seasoned professionals and those in between. Games are designed for everyone's growth and enjoyment.
 
Don't just take our word for it - TechCrunch recently published an article that explains why improv is a great tool for tech workers at startups.
 
I began to realize that improv for entrepreneurs was akin to weight lifting for professional football players, minus most of the grunting. It is a training regimen that transforms people into their most powerful and effective selves in a startup environment. It can take a shy software engineer who’s never talked to a client and turn him into the company’s best salesperson.
 
Come give improv a try Saturday mornings at the Dragon Theatre. The classes begin Saturday, October 22nd at 10am and run weekly for 6 weeks. 
 
This round of classes is taught by Corinne Kason, a professional actress who has worked in New York, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. She taught Improv for the Screen Actors Guild Conservatory in L.A. and S.F. and is currently teaching Improv at the San Carlos Charter Learning School.
 
WHEN: Saturday mornings from 10a - noon beginning Saturday, October 22nd, 2016.
 
WHERE: The Dragon Theatre in downtown Redwood City (2120 Broadway Street) 
 
WHO: anyone aged 18 and up! There's a minimum requirement of 8 people for the class to be a "go." A maximum of 16 students accepted so register early to make sure you get a spot in this popular class! Registration closes at 5pm on Friday, October 21st.
 
HOW MUCH: $200 for the entire 6 weeks (about $33 a session) with an early bird discount of $175 if you register before October 1st, 2016.
