Join Emily Harris from Spirited Fun Improv, AgeWell, and the 10.27 Healing Partnership for a series of four safe and lively classes where participants can stay curious, build friendships and lighten up!
Improv is PLAY – in a supportive, lighthearted space. Imagine for the next hour that everything you say or do will be ABSOLUTELY right. You CANNOT make a mistake. NO preparation. Nothing to remember. NO wrong answers. How cool is that?! JUST. HAVE. FUN. Games and scenes are inspired by your life experiences and guided by your imagination. “Yes and…” means you agree with your partner’s suggestions, then add something of your own to move the action forward. Your partner does the same for you. Everyone wins! You leave refreshed with the sound of laughter to brighten your day.
When Emily Harris discovered improv at the age of seven, she gave herself permission to play and she hasn’t stopped yet. Improv has been a big part of her life for six decades. As an improviser, storyteller, educator, and spirited senior, Emily says, “embracing the improv mindset of ‘yes, and’ can go a long way in filling the need to laugh, feel good about ourselves, and take care of each other.”
The four classes will take place Tuesdays January 17th through February 7th, from 12:30pm-1:30pm, in the 10.27 Healing Partnership suite on the third floor of the JCC.
