Improv Storytelling Workshop

Storytelling is as ancient as the human race itself. Telling stories is how we connect with one another and keep our heritage alive. With the ever=growing presence of technology and virtually any picture show at your fingertips, storytelling seems to be slowly fading away and we’ve even begun to lose the ability to tell a story.

Join Karla Freeman for an exciting 2 week workshop where you will learn how to develop a story and take storytelling to a new level. This is your chance to lean into the stories that want to be told!

Tuesdays and Thursdays
1:30 – 3:30 PM
Oct. 4, 6, 11, 13


For those who aren’t sure if they understand the class or if they would be interested in taking it, we are offering a free introduction to the class on Monday, Oct. 3 at 1:30!
