Professionals

Corporate workshops

In our dynamic, professional development workshops, we take the theory behind theatrical improv, and apply it to the everyday, fostering communication and collaboration ideal for the work environment, where such skills are often overlooked in favor of the purely technical. Designed for participants of all experience levels, Bird City's nationwide workshops cultivate greater task awareness and expose individuals to powerful, tangible creative tools.

Play it Forward

Bird City regularly facilitates free and pay-what-you-choose community workshops. Corporate clients automatically qualify to participate in our Play It Forward initiative. What is Play It Forward? For every corporate training Bird City Improv facilitates, we better fund our education programs, subsidizing diversity scholarships for emerging trans and gender-queer improvisers; and scholarships for Black people, Indigenous people, Asian people, Latino people and People of Color. Play it Forward is an excellent way to spread arts education a wider audience, sponsor grassroot organizations, and to give back to the community.

If you have any suggestions about how we can better serve the Baltimore/DC community through partnerships with non-profits and community organizations, please send us an email at birdcityimprov@gmail.com
