Why is Improv important in my work and in life?
Improvisation is an essential skill to have if you deal with people, customer service, and/or sales on a regular basis. It has proven to increase connection with not only the other people and employees, but with patrons as well. You will learn the craft of communicating authentically along with having fun and laughing so hard, you will sleep better! "Getchur inner child on and sleep like a baby!" It also reduces anxiety and stress and allows a safe place for adults to have play time again. “Isn’t it time we all start playing again?”
What is Improv?
Improvisation is a technique of performance based speech that creates scenes made up on the spot through suggestions from classmates; while creating moments of “being in the now” and “yes, and”. Being in the now teaches how to listen better and stop being in our heads, especially when conversing with other people. Yes, and just means that you agree with whatever suggestion or label is given to you and you add information to enhance the suggestion. This also helps you to be present. The values of these can only be measured through experiencing it firsthand. The results are immediate, and you will feel completely engaged in a way you never experienced before.
Improvisation and Kids...
Improvisation helps boost self-esteem and is an excellent way to allow children to tap deeper into their imagination and create whatever they want, and execute it. Furthermore, improvisation has a lot of ‘give and take’, teaching them to have patience and respect for others by LISTENING and sharing their time on the stage with others, while having fun! It also releases stress and allows them to express themselves and get their emotions out. Stress release has been proven to assist in a clear and healthy mind; which is essential for a child's learning and wellbeing.
