Come and play with the LRMC: Improv principles and communication
~Along with your Fbook RSVP, please email us at <firstname.lastname@example.org> to confirm attendance.~
Led by Joanne Adair.
Are you one of theose ladies who is stuck in her head all the time? Do you go into auto pilot regularly, and suddenly realize that you've arrived, having no idea what has happened with the last 40 minutes? Do you sometimes wish you were a bit more spontaneous, and had more fun and less non-fun days?
Here's my remedy, friends: Come and play. This hour will be packed to the brim with accidently hilarious games and laughter.
We will 'practice' a set of improv principles, which include, focusing, listening, saying 'yes, and', communicating clearly, and 'accepting'. The fun of this is that it's not like a lecture or a group therapy session where you go around and talk about your feelings; as you play the games, there's a short period at the end of each game where we give feedback and people are always so surprised to learn such interesting things about themselves.
Some of the ah-mazing benefits you can expect include:
1. Sleeping like a baby after this session
2. Stretching weird parts of your brain to make new connections and resuscitate other parts that may have almost died from underuse.
3. Learning about your communication and leadership style and how you work in teams
4. Discovering a new perspective on collaboration and creativity
5. Decreasing and alleviate stress in yo' body
Wear some comfy clothes and shoes please, and bring some water yo!

Joanne Adair is always looking for ways to take interesting information and present it in a lively, compelling way. She believes that sitting in a desk all day is like the new modern-day factory. She's always wiggling, shuffling and swaying to compensate for all that sitting. And that's when she stumbled into the Second City Training Centre. In the footsteps of Tina Fey, Gilda Radner, and Naomi Snieckus, Joanne is joyfully studying improvisation and finishes up the basic training level in August, after which she'll audition to study in the Conservatory Program for the next year. Joanne is currently creating various pilot programs based on the principles of improv in various communities around the GTA. You can contact her at email@example.com
