Yes they teach Improvisation at Stanford University. It is taught by our good friend, Dan Klein.
Dan shared this thought with me recently:
"Are you looking for inspiration? Inspire someone else. It's kind of like what my mom used to tell me when I would hope to get mail - just go write someone a letter instead of checking the mailbox every hour." ~Dan Klein
In the video below you'll hear Dan share his view of the value of Improv in this 8 minute TEDx video.
Improv is moving out of the theater and into more and more parts of life. Dan teaches improv not just to drama students but also to the business students at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and the Hasso Platner Institute for Design. This seems like a great idea....there is hope for the world.
