Early Stage Memory Loss Classes

Re-ignite the Mind with Improvisation & Play

This class meets at Taproot Theatre immediately preceding the Greenwood Alzheimer’s Cafe in the same location!

Join your favorite Taproot Improv actors for an hour of stimulating theatre fun that activates the brain as well as the funny bone.

This popular class uses improvisation and theatre games to tap into the creative abilities of individuals experiencing Early Stage Memory Loss (ESML) and their care partners.
