Join us for our free Improvisational Theatre Games for persons with PD, MS,  and their Care Partners on Zoom. You don’t have to want to be a performer on stage to learn improv games and have fun! In this class, you will learn improvisational theatre exercises that benefit emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. After this class, participants find their stress levels have decreased while their laugh life increased! A student shared their thoughts on this class. “All of us have PD at different levels and we’re all trying to accept our challenges. For some of us, communication can be embarrassing and this helps us learn to speak out and not be afraid to use our voices.”
