I’m a professional improviser! Was trained and worked with “The Second City” and teach improv classes to kids! I still do multiple improv shows a week and still write sketch comedy! In my lessons you’ll learn the basics such as “yes, and”, playing games with partners, showing locations and relationships, as well as object work and comedic timing! For more advanced improvisers, we’ll learn about how to affect your partners with your emotions, giving and taking focus, and dive into musical improv!

My 9-year old daughter needed a help with musical audition prep in last minute. Since we moved to another location, Brad was recommended by one of the CYT teachers we new at the previous location. As soon as Brad started the lesson, he knew exactly what was needed to be casted in a show. We only had two lessons before the audition, but his key point lessons were good enough to get a roll in the show for my daughter. We will definitely seek for Brad for next audition prep.

Brad's improv is top-notch, and he's helped me develop and round off the rough edges in my own routines. Highly recommended.

Molly is amazing! She’s taught me way more than singing skills - my confidence as a singer has grown exponentially since I began taking lessons from Molly. I would recommend Molly to anyone, especially anyone who may think that lessons are intimidating. I feel comfortable making mistakes because Molly is so kind and positive. That said, since starting taking lessons with Molly, I’ve been making a lot fewer mistakes! Molly is the best!
Tia
Molly is such a kind and patient teacher. She never gets upset if you make a mistake and she is extremely encouraging throughout the lesson. I'm a very shy singer but I feel comfortable singing in front of Molly because she isn't judgemental at all! I always look forward to my lessons with her and I've already grown as a singer and grown confidence-wise because of working with her! I highly recommend her!

My daughter and I are very happy and pleased with the class my daughter had today with Nikisha. The knowledge and skill that she uses to teach teens how to properly take care of their skin on top of how to properly apply makeup the correct way and not going over the top is wonderful. She helped my daughter feel more confident in her technique when applying makeup. She answered all questions that my daughter asked. Nikisha was very professional and I appreciate her craft and time today just simply amazing!!

If you’re a budding actor, dreaming about moving to LA for your big silver screen break, spending Friday night in watching reruns of your favorite movies may not be as couch-potato-ish as it sounds.
