The Benefits of Improv

Have you ever wished that when you woke up in the morning, there would be a script for your day lying next to your bed? Wouldn’t you like to know exactly how to ask your boss for that raise, have a scene cleverly written to humor your teenagers into cleaning their bedrooms, maybe a list of the people and characters you will be dealing with that day? Well, that's not exactly how life works.  Life is one big improv and you are the star improviser.

After studying, performing, and teaching improv for several years, I started to realize that I wasn't just using the rules of improvisation on stage to entertain an audience, I was also using those same improvisational rules daily in my personal life. 'Give and Take', 'Listen', 'Be in the Moment', 'Be Willing to Change' are just a few basic improv skills that I use daily and most recently while caring for my Father with Alzeihmer's. The improv game, 'New Choice', helped me to overcome a childhood stutter. 

The good news is anyone can learn basic improv skills. Like any skill, they just need to be practiced, strengthened, and implemented. That's what we do in my "IMPROV FOR LIFE" classes and workshops.  BEST of all, learning improv is a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. Can you say that about Algebra?       ~Melinda Chilton
