Jeff Gordon

From the bright lights of Broadway to a dilapidated amusement park in Bangkok; from a Mary Kate and Ashley movie set on a cruise ship to a pediatric AIDS unit in a Bronx hospital; and from The Big Apple Circus tent at Lincoln Center to the People’s Gymanasium in Tianjin, China, Jeffrey Gordon’s 36 year career as Clown Gordoon has taught him that shared laughter and delight is a celebration of being human.

The basic rules of theatrical improvisation are also important rules for any type of collaboration, be it in the classroom, the workplace or the family. The fundamental rule of improvisation is: Always Say Yes. When the students are able to internalize this deceptively simple concept, they discover that effective collaboration, listening and teamwork are both easy and fun.
