Improvisation is a great skill for all actors to have no matter how experienced.
Improv is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up right in the moment. Often improvisers will take a suggestion from the audience, or draw on some other source of inspiration to get started. This act of "play" is encouraged in a fun, safe and supportive creative environment. Just play!
