5 Reasons Why Studying Improv Will Make You Brilliant at Business – By Kate Orgera

“Acting has gained a negative connotation over hundreds, if not thousands, of years for being, essentially, ‘lying.’ But just as startups wish to show how good business is not about greed or cheating, good acting is not about lying—in fact, good acting empowers you to put your best self forward.”

What Makes Us Unique?

We all know that there are lots and lots of options for actors looking to join an indie improv team in New York City. So what makes us different?

Well, for one, Exuberants are committed to a healthy, supportive, and respectful rehearsal environment.  We all have signed a “mutual respect-no gossip” policy.

Second, we will seek paying work for our members whenever possible.

Third, we are committed to constant and never-ending improvement. It’s not about being the best team ever, it’s just about each member working on one’s self and superseding what we did last time even by a fraction of a percent. I listened slightly better. I was a little more out of my head. Fundamentals are the key.

Fourth, we are committed to community service by providing free shows to those who need them.
