Lean Harolds 

Improv isn’t a chore. Instead of thinking so hard and doing so much work, we will learn how to start with less and make what we do matter more. Simple choices done simply will yield outstanding results. Free yourself from fights, bickering and unnecessary complications and get back to why you started improv in the first place: the fun!
