Are you an actor who would like to strengthen your improv skills?
Would you like to play and laugh in a supportive community?
Do you want to get better at thinking on your feet?
Could you use some practice in mindfulness?
turning off your inner critic?
being brave?
Would you like to become more confident speaking in public?
Curious about how this whole improv comedy thing works?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, Zen of Improv One-Day Intensive would be an ever so lovely way to spend the day. Happier Valley Comedy's Founder and Head of Happiness Pam Victor offers this five-hour* intensive for adults who want to try something fun, rewarding, and, quite possibly, mind-expanding. You'll learn a very gentle, very easy, patient approach to improv comedy in an incredibly positive and accepting atmosphere that will get you up on your feet and out of your head. Through improv exercises,  games, and scenework, you'll practice the vital improvisation skills of paying attention acutely, accepting other peoples ideas, redefining and disempowering failure, staying in the moment, quieting your critical voice to invite more joy and ease into your work, and much more.

No experience necessary. Being funny is not required!
Everyone can improvise.
(No joke.)

Join Pam for the Zen of Improv.
It’s good for the stage and it’s good for the soul!

Pre-requisite: None. This intensive is great for people who want to get the whole Zen of Improv 1 curriculum in one improvluscious day as well as experienced performers who'd like to get a healthy dose of the Zen of Improv way.
