Everyone loves a good story. Whether you are teaching a lesson, presenting at a meeting, or simply conversing with friends or colleagues, storytelling skills provide some of the most effective and engaging ways to communicate with others. This workshop teaches the basics of good storytelling, with an emphasis on telling stories in a natural, confident, and improvisational manner in personal and professional settings. Through interactive activities, students will learn tips and tricks to make a story work, and have an opportunity to workshop a story with personalized feedback. Good storytellers aren’t born, they’re made – and this class will get you started. Through Improv-based activities, students will focus on their personal style for presenting, specifically pose, projection, cadence and enunciation, gestures, eye contact and the dreaded impromptu speaking. Over three-weeks, participants will be guided through activities to help them grow their presentations and style, focusing on HOW you say what you say, as well as any specific upcoming presentations. Participants are also invited to bring a ‘work in progress’ to focus on over the course of the class for feedback and refinement.

$35 per person

In 2012, Founder Jen Brown (Oleniczak) was working as a museum educator in NYC and performing Off-Broadway with her improv troupe. When she noticed that the museum education field lacked the ‘how you say it’ component of teaching, she started leading professional development classes in Presentation Skills and threw in a few improv exercises. Realizing that improv connected directly with teaching and communicating, she listed a few public classes in NYC, limiting them to non-actors, specifically educators and teachers. Suddenly, professionals of all kinds were signing up for classes, raving about the results and bringing our improv classroom into their companies for trainings and development. After realizing this was the only class that very strictly did NOT train actors, but focused on the education and reflection side of improv, Jen began The Engaging Educator with a Yes, And and hasn’t looked back since. With the idea that improv is “going to the gym for your brain”, we believe improv is a lifestyle that needs to be practiced consistently and by everyone. Through improv education, professionally, socially and individually – all through the Yes, And. It is not our goal to make actors; our classes are strictly for people looking to work on skills unrelated to performing as a career. We often get asked “What is Yes, And?” Simply put, it’s the idea of elevation – we’re stronger when we surround ourselves by people that lift us up, and people we lift up. Our Yes, And mentality to teaching is not just positivity, it also embodies our idea of positive risk-taking – something we are doing as a company with our students!
