Join us once a week for 4 weeks, or just come once.

The ability to improvise is essential.

Communicating with others is priceless.

Learning through doing is neuroscience.


Stevie Ray is a stand-up comedian, corporate trainer, businessman and our lead instructor. What you can learn:

  • Concrete steps to create a culture in which people are not afraid to fail or openly share ideas
  • How to instill trust and mutual support of a team
  • How to connect and engage with people quickly and build a strong relationship.

Improvisation techniques work on the brain the same way physical exercise works on muscle groups.

The same skills that make for exceptional comedic improvisation – active listening, focus, energy, engagement, teamwork, authenticity, adaptability – are the skills every person can use to make positive changes at home or in the workplace.


If you would like to participate on the next Skills for Life course, please contact Linda Flanders at 651-388-9360


Below we have some videos showing the program and and informational video talking about its purpose.
