  1. What a refreshing article! You made excellent connections. I’m inspired to try improv now. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

  2. Great article. I recently started an improv class for many of the reasons you cited above, and it’s been a lot of fun. As an introvert with a history of stage fright it’s been a great way for me to get comfortable being in the moment and responding on the spot. I’d recommend it to anyone!
