Before you can be creative, you have to think creative.
This intensive is focused on one simple idea: Thinking differently. Improvisation is the art of being spontaneous, thinking on your feet, and discovering new and original ideas. All of those start with the simple act of thinking differently. Are you looking to be more innovative, creative, or simply want to break yourself out of your everyday pattern, this intensive is for you.
