Becoming Unblockable: Stuttering With a Smile

I was fortunate to become involved with the "Unblockables"in early 2021 when Wendy Duke, the clinical director of Columbia Speech and Language Services introduced me to Dan Dumsha. Dan is the director of Improv for Work and Wellness at Tightrope Improv Theatre.
We created a curriculum that would bring Improv skills to people who stutter in a fun, creative and safe way. Our pilot course was a few months ago and you can read about my first-hand experience helping facilitate it in the blog below "Stuttering With a Smile". Using my stuttering background and actor training to help others in a similar situation has been the high point of 2021 for me so far.
Registrations are now open for the next course in September and you can find out more by checking out the Tightrope Theatre website.
