It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Improv is a great learning tool for team building, spontaneity, listening, being present, speaking to groups, communicating one on one, saying yes and so much more. It helps that each game played builds upon the next to reinforce the learning.

Improvisers fail forward. We embrace "failure." We have to fail in order to succeed. If we aren't failing, we aren't trying.

What you get:
Team Building / Laughter Workshop
Bring the team together in an interactive environment that fosters positive thinking and collaboration.

Improv Troupe Direction - for improv troupes who need an outside eye for notes, direction and ideas for marketing your troupe. At the end of the session, you will have new games and ideas to move your troupe forward.

Christine will help each student become more present, less self-conscious and will get them excited about failing.

Expect to leave this class feeling more confident and empowered.

Christine is committed to providing a safe and courageous ...

If there were more than 5 stars, I would give them to Christine. She takes you on a journey and makes it fun ride, all the way. Will recommend anymore starting in Improv to learn from her, as I'm sure I will continue to learn from her...

Thanks for being you Christine :)

I don't know how to describe Christine, except amazing! I started taking her classes because I wanted to learn how to take myself/life less seriously and it's working!!! I would recommend Christine to anyone who is serious about improv or who just wants to learn how to really laugh and relax.

"I worked with Randy on my speaking voice. In just 5 weeks my voice for videos and presentations was much better and I had a plan for further improvements. He's easy to talk to, non-judgemental and provides sage advice. Randy was good at prioritizing things for me to work on, which made it easy to make progress quickly. He split tasks into those that required class time and those that I could teach myself. I'm leaving with specific exercises and books to read for self-improvement."
