Improv Comedy is invaluable to the development of every student. The shows and workshops teach team work, creative thinking and writing, public speaking, self confidence and researching information when you don’t know the answer. But perhaps most importantly, a chance to laugh is a chance to relax and enjoy life. THE SCIENCE OF LAUGHTER says laughter helps all systems of the body and reduces stress, creating better students.
