This event was an absolute blast. We had a great time playing games and doing small scenes designed to help us be trusting, spontaneous and creative. I couldn't stop smiling and laughing because I was having so much fun.

This event was so different from anything I've experienced, and it was MAJOR fun! We had a group of about 35 people, and the director lead us through a series of exercises and then vignettes and skits where we had to become creative on the spot...continued

Tired of the boring old box of Valentine’s Day chocolates and the (yawn) dozen long-stem roses? Wouldn’t it be great if you could do something that’s truly fun and memorable to celebrate the day? Precipice Improv has just the thing! Join them for a special Valentine’s Day Improv Workshop. Designed for both singles and couples, and suitable for everyone regardless of experience, the workshop will guide you through fun and playful exercises in a gentle and supportive atmosphere. And since this is Valentine’s Day, some of the exercises will celebrate the loving relationships in our lives.

Improv training isn’t just for actors or comedians. Much as yoga helps you to stretch your body and relax your mind, Improv exercises help you to relax your body and mind, and build skills like self-confidence, communication, adaptability, positivity, playfulness, empathy, observation, trust and collaboration,

And, oh yeah: Improv is fun!

And, as a special treat, a performance by Flashbang Improv follows the workshop.

The workshop is taught by Gary Jacobs, one of the most experienced and accomplished improv teachers in the D.C. area. Gary has been teaching, producing, and directing improv for 28 years. He now teaches on both the East and West Coasts and last April he taught a workshop in New Zealand. His last eight workshops in Bethesda, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, and Ventura, California were sold out. Gary is currently artistic director of Precipice Improv Theater, Fling! Improv, and Blank Slate Improv.
