Group of people in improv workshop

Enter a world of spontaneous improvisation and joyful, collaborative creativity with acclaimed performers Anthony Arkin and Amelia Campbell.

Anthony Arkin and Amelia Campbell describe the supportive, spontaneous process of improvisation.

This workshop isn't about becoming a stand-up comic or learning how to be an actor. It’s about reawakening the sense of joy and abandonment we had when we were kids. It's about remembering how to be authentic in imaginary situations. It's about entering the world of improvisation.

Learn tools for creating authentic, interesting characters, letting the characters dictate where an event wants to go, and jumping into a sense of easy flow with other people using nothing but the imagination. With a few simple concepts, we quickly enter into a creative place without feeling strain or self-consciousness.

Bringing a combined 50 years of professional theater experience and 20 years of experience teaching in the performing arts, Anthony Arkin and Amelia Campbell create a supportive, spontaneous group environment. We begin to make conscious connections between our work in the scenes and our own emotional lives. We reconnect with the important work of play. And we have a heck of a good time.

Return home with a greater sense of your own voice, a brighter sense of fun in your field, and a deepened sense of empathy in your collaboration.

This workshop is appropriate for beginning actors as well as any level of professional in any field.

Family Week

There is something for everyone at Family Week.

  • Workshops for the grownups that teach skills or help you relax or give you a renewed sense of purpose. The schedule is more flexible than at other times so that the most important people in the world—parents—can get a well-deserved rest.
  • And for the kids there are camps that engage their body, mind, and spirit, get them outside on our beautiful campus, help them make friends, and instill the values of cooperation, compassion, and joyful living.

Adult Workshops meet each morning from 9:30 a.m.–Noon, and Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday from 2:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m. On Thursday afternoon from 2:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m., take time off to relax or enjoy a Dabblers Delights—classes in music, dance, wellness, yoga, and more, led by workshop teachers and special guests.

Kids Camps meet every morning from 9:00 a.m.–Noon, and every afternoon from 2:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m.

In the evenings, everyone gathers for family entertainment.

Please note: If you don't have children you may participate in this program, but be advised almost 200 children are on campus, and services and schedules are geared for children and families.
