Improv as an Everyday Skill @ University of Hawaii - Krauss | Honolulu | Hawaii | United States

Improv is a powerful tool that everyone can benefit from every single day. Whether you want to break out of your shell, hone your public speaking skills, tighten up your business pitch, or just want to get your brain working differently, this workshop is for you! It gets you thinking on your feet and outside the box. GREAT for entrepreneurs, business folk, lawyers, teachers, performers, dogwalkers, and anyone else who likes to challenge themselves with new things. No experience required. Learn in a non-judgmental environment and walk away feeling more confident!
