On Improv and What it Has Been to Me from Childhood-Present.

“in middle school my dad took me downtown to see a show. on the way he explained best he could what improv was, and why i would like it. that saturday night pretty much changed everything. as a young twelve year old, watching people do exactly what i loved to do but on a level i never thought was possible, was incredible. from that night on i went as much as possible, and after every show they would give the ‘thank you for coming to the hideout tonight, we hope you have enjoyed tonights show, if you like what you saw tonight we have shows and classes happening all the time here, just go to for more info, thanks for coming out tonight’ speech, and everytime i wished i could go. but i was in cheerleading, and my family didnt have the time or money for that kind of thing. which is understandable, and im glad i waited until i was old enough for it to be my own thing anyway.”
