Improvisers have the reputation of being fast and funny. But the true value of practicing collaborative creativity is the opportunity to develop your powers of listening, suspending judgment, and paying attention to the moment. There is a quality of human play, often suppressed after childhood, that is essential for creativity, connection and joy.

Instructor: Dan Klein is a lecturer in the Department of Theater and Performance Studies, as well as the Graduate School of Business. He teaches workshops on creativity, teamwork, status, Design Thinking and storytelling on campus and around the world. Dan was also a professional improviser, and the Dean of the BATS School of Improv in SF.
