Winging It: Improv Skills for Life

Co-taught with Jessie Gray, Flying Pig Improv

Do you wish you were quicker with snappy banter? The same skills used in improv, like responding on the spot and keeping conversational momentum going, will help you be faster on your feet in communication. In this interactive workshop, we play fun games and exercises to practice the skills that will help you be a better listener, respond spontaneously with confidence, let go of scripts without judgement.


Meet Co-Teacher Jessie Gray

Jessie Gray, Founder Flying Pig Improv

Jessie has more than 35 years of stage experience from coast-to-coast as an actor, director, producer and choreographer. Her most recent big day-job was as the Executive Producer and Creative Director of Corporate Events for a Fortune 100 company.

A few years ago, she became fascinated with the spontaneous and unscripted world of improv. After intensive study in the San Francisco Bay Area (where she lived for 25 years), she began to perform, and then to teach classes, and then to direct and coach improv troupes weekly. She was a regular performing troupe member of Awkward Face at Pan Theater in Oakland, CA, and Flash Mob Musical Improv in San Francisco. She also teaches an annual workshop at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico as part of the summer Creative Arts Festival as well as other improv workshops around the country by request.

A theater alumnae from Wichita State University, she learned from the best of ICT: Dr. Richard Welsbacher, Joyce Cavarozzi, Mary Jane Teall, and Audrey Needles, among others. She also was a student of improv notables in California’s Bay Area, which include David Alger, David Razowsky, Rachael Hamilton, Tracy Burns, Mick Laugs, and Los Angeles-based Meisner coach, Matt Chait. And now she has brought her vast experience and deep knowledge back to her hometown of Wichita, Kansas, where she has built a new improv home at Flying Pig Improv.
