The Monkey Business Institute imparts the techniques and benefits of improvisational acting in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. Budding comics interested in trying improv explore humor on the fly, assume new characters, and get loose during the two-hour Improv Sampler class, which touches upon a broad spectrum of improvisational techniques and styles used by professional improv comics. Alternately, students in the Improv for Personal and Professional Growth workshop absorb tactics for deft problem solving and releasing inhibitions that boost both professional success and the number of attendees at your next office birthday party. The two-hour session develops quick-thinking skills and creative instincts by encouraging participants to consider the benefits of risk taking, discuss change management, and exercise the art of creative collaboration. Skills learned in this class directly correlate to common job problems such as conflict resolution, customer relations, and whether a Snuggie falls within Casual Friday's guidelines.
