On a weekly basis, one of the Magnet's top performers hosts an ongoing drop-in session. Whether you are looking to play with new improvisors, get some reps in between classes or just brush up on your fundamentals, the Magnet Drop-In is the perfect place to be.
Elana Fishbein is an improv instructor, consultant, and performer based in New York City. She has designed curriculum and facilitated improv workshops for corporations, non-profits, and educational institutions all over the United States and beyond. Elana’s targeted, experiential sessions have helped thousands of students expand their ability to communicate, collaborate, empathize, and lead through radical respect and elevation each other’s ideas.

She is a member of Story Pirates, a non-profit arts-in-education organization that takes stories written by kids and adapts them into hilarious sketches and songs.
