Patrick Short has been improvising with ComedySportz for 25 years. He earned his MFA in directing from the University of Wisconsin, where he first began using applied improvisation to teach elementary education candidates how to survive in the classroom. As co-owner and general manager of the Portland franchise of ComedySportz, he has taught more than seventy classes of beginning improvisers, and has led customized workshops for more than 250 organizations. He is a gifted musical improviser, as well, easily creating original songs on the spot from nothing more than a suggestion. His April POSA workshop will help you to handle classroom situations with creativity and humor—and to make each of your students a partner in improvisation.
