      Enhancing Relationships - An Evening with Improvisation Activities!
       Playful Lessons for Couples and Friends Looking to Connect in New Ways!

      We are offering a workshop for couples and friends looking for opportunities to have deeper connection in a playful and fun way. We will use improvisation skills which are excellent for breaking the ice, building rapport, deepening relationships, and getting to know yourself and others better. 

      Many people think of improvisation as form of acting or “winging it”, yet it is much more! The five tenets of improvisation are helpful tools to use in all relationships. You will work with your partner and with the group to explore “the golden rules of improvisation” through interactive exercises. Just think about how your relationships might benefit from the following tenets:

      Say “Yes, and” then build on what you receive
      Listen attentively
      Make your partner look brilliant
      Look for connection
      Mistakes are gifts, so risk failure

      Do these tenets sound like they could enhance your relationships even more? Then, please join us for this unique workshop and maybe practice what you learn over dinner. You will discover and find new ways to enjoy each other!

      A couple is defined by you- any length of partnership, gender, or sexual identification welcome! Friends or colleagues also welcome!

      If you have any questions, please contact Susanna at or call 650-387-0100.
