What are the seven habits of highly effective improvisers? We’ll look at each in turn and use exercises and improv games to really
explore them in depth. Fifteen years of improv experience distilled into seven bullet points.
Listen Be a better listener. It’s a fundamental skill in improv. Everything else you do proceeds from a state of receptivity.
Accept & build Enter as a blank slate. Be inspired by what your partner gives you and offer something of yourself in response.
Be generous Let your default position be one of play – positive, accepting and joyful.
Feel something & be changed Don’t treat the scene as an intellectual exercise. How do your characters feel about each other? Be willing to be changed by those feelings.
Play intentionally Make offers with brevity and clarity. Pace yourself. Use specifics.
Build from you Take inspiration from your own life. Share something of yourself. How is this scene different because you are in it?
Live in the now What is happening now? Not in the future. Not in the past. Not to other people. But. Right. Now. Discover, don’t invent.
