Smithtown, NY - June 14, 2018 - Lifestage, Inc will offer “Get Your Creativity On With Applied Improvisation and Storytelling” on Tuesday June 26, 2018, from 10 am to 4 pm at Lifestage, Inc 496 Smithtown Bypass, Suite 202, Smithtown, NY. This is a full-day workshop intensive designed to recharge positive energy, connect participants with creative mind and cultivate creative confidence in this full-day intensive workshop designed for adults from all walks of life.
Using improvisation games and exercises, this event will teach how to shift into a creative mindset and develop and communicate ideas that grow into fully-realized scenes and stories. The techniques for making this shift produce a group atmosphere of support, engagement and most importantly, fun.
Past participants in this intensive describe learning how to tap into their own creative brilliance and learn techniques for taking this into daily life. Studies show that creativity training translates into improved communication in families and on work teams, better problem-solving skills and enhanced resilience to stress which helps with thinking and acting under pressure. This workshop is an antidote to burn-out, an ideal way to reset for the summer and keep going on any creative path.
