Improv isn’t just fun and games, you know.

Well, okay, it is. That’s the whole point. But improv teaches skills that can help out in the “real world” as well, as evidenced by this NY Times article about improv and Alzheimer’s.

It’s an interesting article, and it’s easy to see how using improv tools – which are all about being in the present – can help people who are trapped in the past. It would be fascinating to do a study to determine if doing improv before you suffer memory loss could prevent or minimize it.

I guess I should’ve started sooner… where are those darn keys?
