Columbia’s current heat wave can make the most quick witted mind a bit sluggish.

Not only will Thursday’s program at Richland Library Southeast surround you in air-conditioned comfort, but it will recharge that heat-stalled mind.

“Thinking on Your Feet” is a lesson in Improv, “the art or act of improvising, or of composing, uttering, executing, or arranging anything without previous preparation” as defined by dictionary.com.

The class begins at 6:30 p.m. and runs until 8.

Vicki Saye Henderson, a veteran actress and director of education at Columbia’s Trustus Theatre, will demonstrate how the art of improvisational comedy (improv) can build life skills for teens and adults by touching on the following:

▪ Collaboration and communication skills

▪ Team building tools for team leaders

▪ Innovative thinking/problem solving

▪ Narrative story “making”

▪ Confidence building

▪ Thinking on your feet

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes.

The event is free at 7421 Garners Ferry Road. www.richlandlibrary.com
