Julie Feinstein Adams, MA, has been studying, teaching, and performing improvisational theater since 1992.

She began studying and performing improvisational theater at Laney College in 1992 with teacher Lew Levinson. Since that time, she has studied extensively with Sue Walden's ImprovWorks, Bay Area Theatre Sports (BATS), Ruth Zaporah, and Nina Wise. Her education includes both narrative-based improvisation forms and body-based techniques. She obtained an MA in performance art from San Francisco State in 1996. She has performed autobiographical solo pieces at the Exit Theater, Venue 9, Build, and The Marsh. She has performed in puppetry and improvisation ensembles, including BATS, Antenna Theater, Lunatique Fantastique, and the International Action Theater Ensemble.

Julie's workshops focus on helping everyone (not just "theater people") engage their natural creative abilities, surprise themselves into making up stories, stretch the limits of the judging mind, be silly, and have fun.
