Taproot Theatre’s “Re-Ignite the Mind” classes are designed for students with Early Stage Memory Loss (ESML). Class sessions are taught by professional theatre artists and are designed to fit the needs of your class participants. Students find immediate success and improved quality of life as they learn new things, interact socially and live creatively in the moment.

Improv students engage fully in the present moment which makes improv 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.
*currently being offered as Z-Imagination on zoom
This is a lightly guided, slightly slower paced class that uses improv exercises and guided imagination experiences that are designed to rely on and activate long lasting memory that can still be accessed by those with Early to Mid-Stage memory loss.
Care partners are welcome and encouraged to attend as improv exercises can add a wonderful new dimension to shared daily life.
To engage in Taproot’s monthly VIRTUAL Early Stage Memory Loss improv class via Zoom (Z-improv), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All in-person classes are suspended until further notice. For a public health update, CLICK HERE.
