Are you an improv coach or looking to become one? An arts teacher? A teacher in general? Someone who works with groups? In charge of picking icebreakers for the company retreat? Have you ever led a game with a group of people that was just a dud and you couldnt figure out why? Do you want to get better at leading games and activities?
Have we got the workshop for you!
Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 30th from 1:30-3:30pm at the Magnet Training Center for Pick the Perfect Warm-Up: The Social Group Work Theory Behind Improv.
This interactive workshop will explain social group work theory and how it can be used in different contexts, and teach you how to choose and use improv games purposefully for the groups you’re working with. Learn the social science behind why a game might bomb in one group but do well in another, what failed games can really teach you, and how to best pick activities that allow groups to grow.
This is a FREE workshop designed and led by experienced social workers, teaching artists, and the teenagers of the Life Lines Performing Arts Troupe and is open to ANYONE interested in this topic, no previous experience required!
To RSVP please e-mail Caitlin Steitzer, MSW at firstname.lastname@example.org
Who are the presenters? The Life Lines Performing Arts Troupe is a program from the Center for Family Life in Sunset Park Brooklyn. Teens selected to participate in this program spend the summer training to lead games and activities with 160+ middle school campers at our specialized arts camp. In the past, the Troupe has developed and led improv workshops all across New York City, with participants as young as 5 and as old as 95. They have spread the love of improv and games to over 2,000 people since being founded in 2012.
You’ve seen the infomercial, you’ve visited in person, but if you want to get the low down on the new Magnet Training Center, you’ve got to come by our Open House this Friday, March 27th. The evening will begin at 5:30pm with a town hall style meeting which will last roughly an hour. After that, Magnet owners and staff will be hanging out until 8:30pm to answer questions and talk about anything under the sun. This is a great chance for the entire community to come together, see the progress that the Magnet is making, and chat with some of the people helping with its development. If you haven’t seen the new digs, what are you waiting for??? Come say hello! All are welcome!!

In order to meet rising costs and ensure that we keep the lights on, supplying you with the very best improv classes in NYC, Magnets low prices will be increasing slightly in January 2015. All core and conservatory classes will increase by $50, a change which will be reflected on the website as soon as next years classes go up.
Were also adjusting our rules on retaking Level 4 classes. Beginning in January, you will only be able to repeat the same Level 4 at half-off. If youd like to choose a new Level 4 with a different subject, youll be charged full price.
All classes that begin before January 1, 2015 will adhere to the current pricing so sign up while it lasts!
