Share a favorite 'improv epiphany'

This was my aha moment, when I realised that Improv was the missing link in the backgrounds of most of us in the group.
More about you: (Short Bio or any other details you'd like people to know)
Background in Physical Education, gravitated to coaching with Australian Institute of Sport and Programs Management at Victorian Institute of Sport. Have always used the performing arts as a key stimulus for the achievement of excellence. Improv remains a source of personal wonderment; something that needs to be utilised more widely in all aspects of life.
I need help with...
