Amy has lead improv workshops for community groups of many kinds. Over the years, she has led comedy summer camps for 5-7 year olds, workshops for senior citizens engaging with the arts, and guided actors hoping to be more spontaneous on stage. Whether you’re looking to foster camaraderie in your arts organization, or work toward a final improv performance, Amy is keen to lead you to your goals.
With seniors, Amy Shostak is a remarkable teacher! She has an intuitive understanding of what delights them. Amy creates a safe environment of mutual trust and affection, and then expects and obtains the highest standards of work. In a single workshop taught by Amy, I have seen seniors grow from reluctant participants, to playful exuberant performers.David Barnet, Artistic Director, GeriActors & Friends
