Reducing stress in the workplace can often be achieved simply by improving communication, confidence, creative problem solving and most of all... learning to have fun so your team enjoys working together. This is where we come in.
The reality is, acting classes aren’t just for actors. Anyone and everyone can benefit from opening yourself and your team up to a whole new level of communication and teamwork, resulting in a healthier workplace.
Acting may seem intimidating, but it isn't. Often, the only difference between acting in a scene and giving a presentation is that with the latter, you’re speaking your own words. Our workshops can help you if you need to give speeches, offer constructive input at meetings, lead presentations... or simply to communicate more effectively and be more fun and spontaneous! It's important to remember that in our workshops, we focus on group exercises and teamwork to bring out your dynamic personality; we don't just put you in front of your group and tell you how to stand -- that doesn't work.
Many people view acting as only training for stage and screen, but it offers a wealth of uses for the business world, personal life, relationships and so much more. One thing it does not do is make you is a good liar; acting is all about truth, and finding the best, authentic version of yourself for the given situation.
KAS can provide a group workshop for up to 12 at our studio.
Prefer to use your own space? No problem. Many do.
Strong teamwork is key to success in any business. An organization is only as good as its people and their ability to achieve common goals, solve problems collaboratively and communicate openly and effectively. KAS’s workshops offer a unique experience outside the corporate atmosphere. Our objective is to encourage and develop creativity, intuition, team building, collaboration, thinking outside the box, and learning to have fun together, not stress together!
