January’s guest speaker is exceptionally exciting!

Improve Your 2017 via Improv when someone says to you, “I do improv,” what’s your first reaction? Is it, “I could never do that!” Nonsense! We all improvise every day because life is unscripted. Forget the comedy part of improv comedy and instead embrace being and reacting in the moment, accepting gifts from others, and using failure to thrive in an unscripted environment. How? By utilizing improv’s magic mindset.

Join seasoned improviser Amy Angelilli, Chief Adventure Officer of The Adventure Project, as she shares how bringing improv onto the stage of life changed everything for her. Then, participate in an interactive experience where you just may jump-start your own improv journey. To learn more about Amy and The Adventure Project, visit www.adventure-project.com.

Please RSVP by January 13, 2017 to [email protected] with the number of guests attending.
