As parents we don’t have all the answers but we know the tools we want to equip our kids with: Resilience, Adaptability, and a Mindset that enables them to learn and grow no matter what the situation. That’s where improv comes in: because, at its heart, improv is the practice of taking any information at all and turning it into something useful.
In this grownup to grownup workshop, we’re going to use improv games to address how our kids are taking on their schoolwork, the challenges of socializing, and the frustrations of collaborating. This is an on your feet, laughing, sharing one of a kind experience. Everyone leaves this workshop with actionable “games” that will get your kids saying “Yes, And” to the adventures presented to them in our new normal.

Can the way we play with our kids help them bounce back after setbacks? Our instincts as parents are often to try to fix problems. In this workshop, we'll play with techniques that can help empower our children to find their own way through adversity. Learn strategies to guide the kinds of conversations that help our kids solve problems and have the confidence to keep growing, no matter what comes their way.

Over the past two years, we've had to shift and adapt more than we even knew we could. In this workshop, we'll play with upbeat improv-based exercises that can help our kids embrace their adaptability by: exploring problems with curiosity; clearly defining when we're exploring and when we're taking action; and keeping a "North Star" vision of the future we want, even when temporary obstacles arise.
