Improv Comedy teaches us to be our best selves, developing self confidence and self awareness, creativity, critical thinking, public speaking and more. In corporate workshops, we use Improv to teach team building, leadership, sales and service. In K12 schools we align with SEL (Social Emotional Learning), Cultural Arts and Language Arts curriculum. Simply playing Improv comedy games raises your EQ, teaching empathy. But most importantly, WE HAVE FUN!!!!
