Want to hone your acting chops or just get more comfortable speaking in front of others?
Check out the Patel Conservatory’s new Adult Improv theater class.
Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m.
Feb. 3 through Mar. 31, 2015
Led by local improv guru Toby Martini, the class will help students learn to think on their feet and lose their inhibitions in a fun and collaborative environment.
“Anyone who wants to perform needs to take some improv,” said Martini. “When you’re on stage, something will go wrong, someone will forget a line, a prop will break...Improv helps you be creative and work with other actors.”
Toby formed, directed and performed with the Bay Area Improv Theatre, a professional Improv troupe based in Tampa for more than 10 years. He is also a professional public speaker and trainer. He teaches workshops and corporate team-building training utilizing his years of improv experience.
“Improv can help people be better in business so they can get their message across clearly, or help a shy person figure out how to talk to people,” said Martini.
Martini enjoys helping people and teams become fun and fearless. Through his classes and workshops, he helps students build their communication and teamwork skills, as well as foster creativity, innovation and self-confidence.
At the end of the 8-week class, students get to show off their skills in a performance.
“By the time you get to that show, you will be amazing. You’ll learn that improv games work and you’ll want to perform!” said Martini. "Improv is magic and can help in every area of your life!”
