MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION
December 8, 2022
   "I cannot thank you and your team enough, we had a great time and have already started using some of the tools we learned from you! Our team was so impressed with your ability to get us involved! We were a little worried about participation but it worked out great! Thank you for sharing the games, we are excited to play them in our personal lives as well as at work. Overall, we are just so grateful for the warmth and kindness from you and your team. You gave us an opportunity to let lose and laugh with our colleagues which has led to stronger bonds among us!"

 

"Our staff was very impressed with Wendy’s and her team’s ability to engage with our audience and make everyone feel willing and excited to participate. We had a lot of fun learning the different improv techniques and practicing our ability to think on the fly . These skills will be useful in our everyday work environment as we communicate with colleagues, donors, families, and more!”

Looking for something fun? Heard of Improv but not sure what it is? Well you've come to the right site.

 

Improv is producing something from little more than a suggestion and your own imagination. It requires techniques such a listening, saying yes, adding, solving, creative thinking and cooperation.

There is technique that can help you

be great at it!

(We teach that! 😃)

 

My name is Wendy Pennington and I am a long time screen and stage actor, now an award winning director, producer and screenwriter. I started IMPROV Dallas in 2012 after studying and performing Improv in Hollywood for 14 years.

MORE ABOUT IMPROV ON NPR

The rules of improv can make you funnier. They can also make you more confident.

For actors, acting is all about reacting-responding naturally to what has been said or done onstage. Since acting is reacting, there is nothing that will build your acting skills faster than improv. 

 

Classes are lead and taught by long time sag/aftra union actress, award winning short filmmaker, producer, screenwriter,

 Wendy Pennington

"The improviser’s skills use emotion, action and imagination to produce a story, characters, props — and a world — out of thin air. This creative experience is powerfully satisfying to the brain, which feasts on the activity and the joy of discovering moments and scenes that range from wildly comic to wonderfully compelling. The process of brain-to-brain and social-emotional interaction makes improvisation training uniquely effective for strengthening the capacity to cope with uncertainty, manage anxiety and boost the creative thinking that is so essential to navigating an increasingly complex world." The Mental Health Benefits Of Improv

 

 

 

I started specializing in Improv as an actor about 25 years ago. My training includes the famed Groundlings in Hollywood and so much more. I've used my improv skills both in my acting roles and my business endeavors.

 

In 2012 I starting teaching Improv to actors in Dallas after 14 years of training and working in Hollywood. Soon Improv Dallas grew to become the Dallas talent agents number one place to send their actors and models for training... because our actors work. 😃

In 2014 The ID Comedy Troupe, made up of top, advanced Improv Dallas students, took the stage in Dallas for a public performance. A list of actors who grace the screen in national commercials, TV series and films, plus a Broadway standout, wowed the crowd with roaring laughter. We did many shows that year and in our audience were company leaders who called and asked if we could train their employees with these valuable Improv Games. I have been sharing these improv techniques with companies ever since. 

I call Dallas home, yet travel for both on screen roles and corporate trainings for team building, sales and leadership skills.

Yes, and, you can fly me to your event too. I've enjoyed many great company events in Dallas and out of town, working with talented business people, and I'd love to work with yours.
