Workshops

Group Specific Info –     Suggested Topics -   Previous Groups

You found the right place if you have a desire for team building, mind expanding, skill developing or just fun!  Here’s something for most people.

Education should engage the learner.  The student must never feel stupid.  If you aren’t learning, “blame the teacher”.

Shawn travels 7 – 9 months of the year and will be in Japan, Australia, South America, Europe, Africa, North America or somewhere near you soon.  Workshops occur wherever groups express an interest so contact him or check out the schedule for a workshop in your area.

Topics for workshops…

These are a few of the workshops Shawn teaches.  All workshops are  flexible in content, amount of time, focus and skill levels.  For example, a business manager would utilize the skills offered in improvisation differently than a dancer or scientist and so the teaching approach would be altered.

Those primarily interested in IMPROVISATION,  are encourage  to check Shawn’s Improvisation specific website at www.improworldtour.com

  • Improvisation
  • Mime
  • Mask Making
  • Mask Performing
