“Improv is all about saying, YES, to whatever happens IN THE MOMENT in creative play. Taproot’s trained improv teachers lead our memory loss classes, and students excel in this creative setting, utilizing multiple areas of memory that still function well. The end result is a feeling of success and accomplishment in a class filled with laughter and social connection.” – Pam Nolte, Taproot Theatre Co-founder and Teaching Artist

Our classes are designed to fit your organization’s need.

Improv students engage fully in the present moment, making improvisation a perfect theatre class for individuals with early stage memory loss (ESML). There is no memory requirement, just the delight of participating in a creative experience that releases the imagination while giving a sense of accomplishment, self confidence and social enrichment. Taproot’s classes, taught by trained theatre professionals, promise an hour where participants find success as they learn new things, interact socially and live creatively in the moment.

These classes are highly recommended for both those experiencing ESML and their care partners as class exercises can add a wonderful new dimension to shared daily life.

Bring our trained ESML improv teachers to your location or attend a class at Taproot Theatre.
