Life calls you to the stage, whatever that stage looks like. It's time to make something happen, take your mark in the bright light, and play forward! Small shifts in our mindset may help us navigate change and challenges with creative confidence, a spirit of playfulness and imagination, and with positive energy. Through insights learned through the art of improvisation, the process of creativity and creative thinking, the process of play, and the practice of positive psychology, we can explore collaboration, co-creation, imagination, and relationship-building. 

This workshop invites you to re-energize and support one another in a positive, playful environment. Your curtain call will be deliberate action toward positive connections, growth mindsets, and a spirit of “Yes! Brava!”
