Improv is a form of unscripted theater where the plot, characters, and dialogue are created spontaneously in the moment. One of the core components of Improv is “Yes, and…” thinking; this refers to taking the ideas of others, accepting them in their entirety, and adding to them.
In the world of improv, the "yes, and" rule is like a high-five for your creativity and makes generating ideas a playful and collaborative experience.
Improvisation classes strengthen communication, creative thinking, problem-solving, and interpersonal relationships. It requires vulnerability and support and is a group challenge that breaks down barriers and requires teammates to listen and respond. Improv unleashes creativity by allowing your ideas to flow freely by removing inhibitions. This leads to a greater sense of confidence and camaraderie.
