Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.

Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

Online Improv Acting Teacher

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.

Had a blast!
Edward
I was looking for an instructor who had a balance of fun and professionalism. Being new to yoga, it was a bit intimidating at first but Victoria really gave off a welcoming/energetic vibe from the get-go. She takes the time to answer questions and demonstrate in detail. Great pace, very informative, and overall a great session!
John
Victoria is a great Yoga instructor - she even helped me figure out how to stretch some really tight muscles which has reduced my back pain a bunch!
