Improv for Parkinson’s with Dan Dumsha

Through improvisation exercises, participants will enjoy activities that foster the skills of presence, listening, spontaneity, teamwork and co-creation.

This workshop series will help you to overcome the barriers of anxiety, fear and overthinking by releasing expectations and being in the moment. The series will encourage you to discover the joy in collaborating with others and to apply this approach to overcome isolation and the discouraging effects of living with compromised brain health.

Through the class, we will play improv games and activities that will help to boost your communication abilities and creativity, creating confidence and the ability to “yes, and” your symptoms and your life.
