Our Mission

At Steel City Improv, our mission is to revolutionize corporate training through the art of long-form improvisation. We empower businesses and their employees to embrace their natural talents and develop essential skills for professional growth. 

Our Applied Improvisation techniques enhance teamwork, communication, and leadership, transforming both individual performance and organizational dynamics. We are committed to delivering engaging and effective training workshops that bring practical benefits to businesses.

Our Philosophy: Listen. Commit. Play.

  • Listen: Mastering the art of listening opens up a world of possibilities. In a world where everyone wants to be heard, truly staying in the moment and listening can transform interactions and create meaningful connections.

  • Commit: Embracing others’ ideas and fully committing to our own can be daunting. Improv training helps us silence the inner critic and take bold steps forward, fostering a supportive environment where creativity can flourish.

  • Play: A playful mindset unlocks endless potential and inspiration. When we view failure as an exciting part of the creative process, it encourages a fearless approach to innovation and collaboration.
