Goshen Theater Education Workshops

Goshen Theater offers workshops for the Goshen Community to continue their education in various theatrical, performance, and artistic skills. Each session concentrates on a different discipline within the performing arts, from acting, dancing, and singing, to technical theater. Community members are invited to share what they would like to learn to help us develop meaningful programming to serve them.

Improv in the Workplace

Goshen Theater Education Department and GoProv Friends are excited to bring back Adult Improv classes with Steve Freeto.

The second session will be held on April 21, 2024, from 1-3PM.

This session will focus on Improv in the workplace. Work on your public speaking and presentation skills. How to adapt to an ever changing work environment. From zoom to the conference room, improv can make you better at your job. This is an ideal session for those looking to polish some skills and perfect for those professionals who want some practice being in front of a crowd. No need to picture your audience naked when you have skills to make public speaking easier. Butterflies and nerves can propel your presentation.
