Improv for Anxiety

Buy Tickets

Prerequisite: None
Duration: 1 class
Class length: 2.5 hours
Cost: $50

Improv asks us to breathe, be in the moment, and react honestly. These are the same actions we can take to ground ourselves when we’re feeling anxious. This workshop will not focus on performance, but rather on the improv skills that can help you to manage your anxiety.

No improv experience is necessary.

DISCLAIMER

1. The instructor is not a therapist and this workshop is not meant to replace therapy.
2. The instructor does not have all the answers (no surprises there).
3. Mental health is incredibly complex and varies from person to person. The hope of this class is that you will be provided with some tools you can experiment with and employ as it suits your individual circumstance.

    • Proof of negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to each class
    • Documentation of medical exemption

  • All students are required to wear a mask within the building at all times, in accordance with City of Edmonton bylaw and Province of Alberta restrictions
  • Rapid Fire continually works closely with Fringe Theatre to assess hazard mitigation for all participants
  • The workshop space is large with high ceilings, and class sizes are kept small to protect you and other participants, making it very easy to maintain social distancing throughout the class
