Does your inner 5-year-old want to come out to play? Then improv is just the ticket -- it's just like recess, only you don't have to get on the monkey bars (unless you really want to). In addition to having laugh-out-loud, silly good fun, you'll also learn to think on your feet, improve your flexibility and play well with others. These are all skills that come in handy in life, work, and social situations. Isn't it more fun to learn while giggling?
