    Tired of the boring old box of Valentine’s Day chocolates and the (yawn) dozen long stem roses?  Wouldn’t it be great if you could do something that’s truly fun and memorable to celebrate the day?  We have just the thing!  Join us for a special Valentine's Day Improv Workshop and Performance.  Designed for both singles and couples, and suitable for everyone regardless of experience, this two-hour workshop will guide you through fun and playful exercises in a gentle and supportive atmosphere.   And since this is Valentine's Day, some of the exercises will celebrate the loving relationships in our lives.

    Improv training isn’t just for actors or comedians.  Much as yoga helps you to stretch your body and relax your mind, improv exercises help you to relax your body and mind, and build skills and attitudes like these:

 Self-confidence                      Communication

Trust and Collaboration          Adaptability

Optimism & Playfulness         Empathy & Observation

 And, oh yeah: Improv is FUN!  

     The workshop is taught by Gary Jacobs.  Gary as been teaching, producing, and directing improv for 28 years in Washington, D.C.  In addition, Gary has taught improv in California and New Zealand.  His last eight workshops in Bethesda, in Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, and Ventura, California, and in Auckland and Christchurch, New Zealand  were sold out.  Gary is currently artistic director of Precipice Improv Theater, Fling! Improv, and Blank Slate Improv.

    Here's a review of one of his previous workshops:

     "I was always jealous of my friends who had an 'artistic outlet' - a way to express themselves outside of work and family. I can barely draw a stick figure and I leave musical instruments to people who can play them. Stepping into Gary’s beginning improv acting class opened that creative door for me. Anyone can do it. Blissfully, “talent” or being funny isn’t required. All I needed was the desire to have fun. Gary takes care of the rest. Going to improv class is a highlight of my week, and no, I’m not a recluse! As a bonus, the class has given me the confidence to speak in front of others when the need arises. Think wedding toasts and presentations. I’m so glad I found this class!" - Julie S
