Thrifty Thursday Kick-Off!

FREE Improv Class with Gabrielle White!  Thursday, October 11 at 6pm!  Email to reserve your spot.  Walk-ins welcome as long as class is not full.  

Improvisational Theatre class at Anam Cara will blow your mind. Classtime will be spent learning group warm-ups that align the mind with your fun, creative and playful spirit . We will then responsibly dive into the shallow end of the improv pool with character development and then make the big plunge to stage games. Improv is the art of being who you are, regardless of the circumstances. Actors are welcome as well as people who get paid to perform onstage. We are all actors, all are welcome. We will focus on doing so please be prepared to play, arrive limber, and with 100% stoked-ness for having a blast, and learning about yourself in a supportive team environment.  

Gabrielle White is facilitating this meeting of improv minds. With a minor in Theater from Ithaca College she has trained in the Linklater Technique from Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA as well as training in improvisational theater from Scared Scriptless in Anchorage, AK. She has a great passion for the arts as a means towards joy and healing and you can find her spreading the seeds of emotional change through Laughter Yoga, Co-Counseling, singing, dancing, and general Tomfoolery.
