What you'll do

Our introductory improv workshop is a series of exercises and games that teach the skills of successful improvisation:

  • fearlessly taking risks withholding judgment
  • engaging enthusiastically with every idea
  • applying this to your team
Participants will take away actionable tools for expressing themselves more confidently and creating more effectively as an ensemble, and have fun doing so in a safe, fast-paced, and low-pressure environment.


Workshop objectives

  • Saying “Yes, And” to every idea in the brainstorming process.
  • There is no right or wrong; there are only weak or strong choices when brainstorming.
  • Listening and making what the other person said important.
  • Creating and supporting an ensemble (everyone acting as both leader and follower).
  • Gift-giving, empowering, and making your partners look good.
  • Accepting and building on offers (both overt and subtle ones).
  • Responding with curiosity as opposed to reacting emotionally.
  • Having the courage to not waste time and create expeditiously and efficiently.
  • Disarming difficult conversations and making sure everyone is “on receive” to hear what you are communicating.


What you need

When we come to your office, we just need a room big enough to accommodate everyone making a circle together, ideally with an open floor plan, but we can be flexible on that. The room needs to be private so we won't get distracted.


You can also come to our studio for an additional $200. Sometimes groups love to do an afternoon workshop with us, go grab an amazing dinner at a local Bklyn spot (Win Son or Casa Ora are very popular), and then go see the pros improvise at the theater where we have shows on ($10 tix per person).

Occasions this event works well for

A great experience for a team building event, either to have fun and bond, or to improve everyone's presentation skills. Also works well for leadership offsites, or as part of a training session for new managers.

Can I customize my event?

Yes, you are welcome to customize your event. All of our events are mix-and-match. For example, if you want to host a candle-making event at your office instead of a studio downtown, you can! If you want to add catering, we can help. Just drop us a note when you book, and we'll arrange it for you!

Yes, we work only with highly reliable vendors. Every single one of our vendors is a small business owner. We either saw them in action or received a recommendation from one of our clients. Small business owners spend years mastering their skills and put great care into planning your experience.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. We also accept ACH transfers. You can securely enter your payment details by following the invoice/payment link in the confirmation email.

Can I cancel my booking and get a refund?
