This two-session workshop will focus on guided improv exercises to help you build confidence in your storytelling ability and  loosen your inhibitions. Through a variety of interactive games and exercises, you'll gain inspiration to be more spontaneous, find your authentic voice, and as a result, develop a deeper connection with any story, personal or traditional, that you choose to work on in future. You’ll learn how to take risks and fail--but gracefully, and with wild abandon. And you'll have fun!

This course is open to anyone who has taken an introductory storytelling course, from Storytelling Toronto or elsewhere.
