We are proud to be partnered with the Parkinson Society of British Columbia to offer online Improv Courses focused on health, wellness, and joy.
This course is designed to introduce students with Parkinson’s disease (PD) to the foundations of improvisation and apply improv skills to life with PD. Participants will build community, learn new skills, work together, tell stories, and laugh!
We encourage family members and carepartners to attend with participants, as many games can be played at home after the class. No previous improv experience necessary.
Please note that registration for “Laughter is the best medicine” will be prioritized to those who have not participated in improv classes before. If you have participated in improv classes before please consider registering for the “Performance Troupe” course or contact Courtney Doherty at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waitlist for this course.
Wednesdays from 11:00am – 12:00pm
No class on November 11th
Capacity: 12 participants
Fees: This course is being provided free of charge to participants. As the cost to PSBC to run this program is $120 per person, donations are appreciated.
Join the first ever Canadian Improv PD Performance Troupe! Those with previous improv experience are invited to join the Performance Troupe to focus on applying the foundations of improv for performance.
