In this activity the trainer welcomes the participants and introduces himself/herself, then present the objectives of the training session and ask participants to express their expectations. Than, the trainer will organize the “IMPRO’Icebreaker” to make every one confident.

Duration: 20-30 minutes
This game can be easily modified to accommodate any art. In the case of Improvisation, learners are given a photocopied sheet with pictures that represent emotions and facts. Students cut out and paste the photos they want to use onto their “Photo board”. The trainer asks participants one by one to tell a story about themselves (with real facts) to introduce themselves to the rest of the group.
