So last night I went to my first ever improv class! I heard about how fun it was from my brother-in-law, and then my friend Nancy here told me how much she had enjoyed improv in the past, and finally some encouragement from [livejournal.com profile] aphorisic led me to sign up for a 6-week course with said friend Nancy.

I was a lot less nervous that I expected to be, and found the whole thing just really fun. When I was writing before about wanting to feel open and connected, it feels like improv is a lot about doing that. I used to watch a lot of Whose Line, and I like to crack jokes, but this feels like a broader license to explore that and do whatever comes to mind without premeditation, which I find really enjoyable. I think it's maybe possible that I pursue one-liners a bit much, for the community spirit of making other people look good, but we'll see and I have more time to play around with that.

I definitely want to have parties with improv games now. Possibly musical dance improv games. This is great. I can't think of a single person I know who would not benefit from doing this.
