Improv brings people together. Through exercises that focus on building a foundation of trust and support, we can cultivate an environment for healthy, innovative collaboration. Improv requires us to listen, think on our feet, empathize with different points of view, turn mistakes into opportunities, and take creative risks. With practice we can develop a deeper awareness of ourselves and others. I fundamentally believe that improv has the potential to make us kinder, more open-minded, and confident in our authentic selves. Improv is both joyful and empowering.
