What are people saying about our workshops?

Excellent teachers who clearly know what they are talking about.
I was surprised at how much I learned in just 4 classes!
The games and exercises we did were perfect for beginning. The lessons were pertinent to the improv world, and the real world! So much to take out of the class.
Improv nights are my favourite day of the week. What a perfect little community.
I think it is fantastic (and quite generous) that you offer students free admission to shows.
