Social Guru Saya Hillman was recently interviewed by the LeapYear Project, a website designed to help people share their stories about fear and take a giant leap in 2012. The Chicagoan native, who is the creator of Mac 'n Cheese Productions, is helping 38 strangers conquer their fears of public performance and possibly humiliation. Over the past three months 20 non-dancers have learned to dance and 18 non-improvisers have learned to improv. The fruits of their sweat, tears and fear all culminate on April 28 for a show at Park West. Go and be inspired by local Chicagoans conquering their fears! As Hillman says, "What's the worst that can happen? You end up right where you are, but better for having tried."
