July 13, 20, 27 - Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM September 8, 15, 22 - Thursday nights from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM Ready for more than just one class? Did you take our one-off and want more? Join our specially designed 3-week improv class for the working professional and educator. We know improvisation is not just something for actors and comedians – our students are Marketers, Professors, VPs, Teachers, Executives, Associates, you name it! One thing they all have in common? They want to work on their professional skills through Improv Education. Improv is all about communication! From listening skills and focus to public speaking and presence, improv builds confidence, enhances listening and responding skills, and encourages collaboration. It fosters positive ‘Yes, And’ mentality of team, versus the agenda driven “I”. It is all about the moment, the right now – essential to good communication. We view improv like training at the gym for a marathon. You can’t go once and run thirteen miles or be immediately fit. People can’t just walk into a classroom, meeting room, interview or gallery and be present and captivating, capable of incredible flexibility and communication. By training your brain with improv, you are sharpening those skills and more. This three week class will enhance your skills in public speaking, focused listening, responding, flexibility and specificity – leading to greater confidence and lower inhibitions when speaking or presenting. Certificates are granted on request for workplace credit/reimbursement. Instructor: Lawrese Brown

About
Message
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!
