"When I originally told my husband that we were going he was not too thrilled. I was completely worried but hopeful that he would relax and enjoy himself. Well my prayers were answered because he had a ball and he actually participated. On our ride home he couldn’t stop talking about how much he enjoyed himself and how we both were impressed as a whole."

"Improv has made such a positive impact on every aspect of my life – too much to sufficiently relay in an afternoon email. I’m so happy in improv, and thankful to you for taking out the time to host this class. I will definitely be continuing to come to class, and am excited about becoming more and more involved in the improv community."
