3 Mondays, December 4, 11 + 18 Looking to up your teaching flexibility and style? Join our specially designed 3-week improv class for educators. Whether you are starting out or teaching for years, working at a high school, college or museum, we’re focusing on teaching the teacher! Improv is all about communication! From listening skills and focus to public speaking and presence, improv builds confidence, enhances listening and responding skills, and encourages collaboration. It fosters positive ‘Yes, And’ mentality of team, versus the agenda driven “I”. It is all about the moment, the right now – essential to good communication. We view improv like training at the gym for a marathon. You can’t go once and run thirteen miles or be immediately fit. People can’t just walk into a classroom, meeting room, interview or gallery and be present and captivating, capable of incredible flexibility and communication. By training your brain with improv, you are sharpening those skills and more. This three-week class will enhance your skills in public speaking, focused listening, responding, flexibility and specificity – leading to greater confidence and lower inhibitions when speaking or presenting. This class will focus on personal and professional development as well as activities that can be led whatever classroom you are in! Certificates are granted on request for workplace credit/reimbursement. $99 non-NYCMER, $89 for NYCMER Members To register: Email OR Visit: And use the code nycmer for your discount!
