Jan. 18, 2018
An improv comedy theatre in Phoenix is offering improvisation workshops to businesses to help with team building and workplace communication.
Jacque Arend, Director of Education and Corporate Training at Torch Theatre, says improv requires the performers to rely on the each other to succeed, and bringing that skill into the workplace helps people to be more successful at their jobs. According to Arend, improv is known to improve communication and active listening skills, and helps to build trust between coworkers.
Torch Theatre offers free drop-in improv classes on the first Saturday of every month at 2:30 p.m. For more information about classes and shows, visit thetorchtheatre.com.
