Gain self-confidence
Improve public speaking and writing skills
Learn to think on your feet
Open yourself to new ways of looking at things
Become a better listener
Bring more laughter into your life

All you need is an open mind and a willingness to play!

In this class we will explore:

Agreeing and committing
Attention and memory
Miming actions
Creating our environment
