    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Improv Night!

The English & Arts Club hosted an improv workshop with the help of Merry Vaughan and Sharon Dixon Obst. We started with some basics: never ask questions, don’t think too much, and never deny someone. The first warmup we did was to make sure we didn’t deny anyone. Someone would make a statement and the next person would say, “Yes and…”, to build off of their statement. This prevents us from saying, “No”, “but”, “although”, and other words that make it sound like we are saying the other person is wrong. This is important because the scene is NEVER going to go exactly the way you’d expect so you have to embrace other people’s ideas of where it’s going. Next, we tossed an invisible ball back and forth saying a word each time we caught it. This was to keep us from thinking too much. The goal is to pass the ball quickly so that you say the first word that comes to your mind instead of trying to think ahead. After this, we tried some games! We did a scene building game and played “Who’s coming to dinner?” Everyone was laughing and having a good time, even if we occasionally messed up by asking a question or disagreeing. To finish off the night, Merry and Sharon performed a game of “Triathalon” where Merry has to get Sharon to guess three very unusual scenarios without using any real words. One example was scuba diving in Maple Syrup with Justin Trudeau. It was a blast! They also mentioned a new improv club has started on campus and I might just have to check it out!
