Improv is Already the Next Big Thing

What do the NYPD, the CEO of Twitter, or MIT’s business school have in common?  They use improv to build their teams.  Improv has been cited by dozens of scientific studies for its incredible ability to create more positive outcomes in day-to-day situations.

Thousands of companies are utilizing the techniques of improv to develop individuals that communicate more effectively, are more creative, have better public speaking skills, and promote positivity in their personal interactions.
