Improv is a great tool for being present, listening, spontaneous, speaking to groups, communicating one on one, saying yes and so much more. Improvisers are failures. We fail forward hard just for laughs. We embrace, applaud and laugh at failure while we walk away with needed experience. Just wait until you can say you've been doing improv for a year. And in 5 years it feels even better. The time is going to pass any way... let's laugh together. What you get: Christine will help each student become more present, excited and less self-conscious failing. Expect to leave this class feeling high on happiness. Christine is committed to providing a safe and courageous place for people to have fun, learn and play. My passion is to share the incredible art form of improvisation with excitement and humor.

Learn the skills and techniques needed to become an improvisational comedian or actor. Learn methods that you can utilize in your everyday life to sharpen and hone your skills as you go through your daily routine. Learn the methods and routines of a professional comedy magician and actor with over 30 years touring experience. You too can create a mental rolodex of material that will appear to be as natural and impromptu as the greatest improv artists alive today. The process really isn't as difficult as you think so stop feeling overwhelmed or anxious and let a professional teach you the secrets of the pros. I look forward to the honor of working with you and sharing the intimate art of improvisational comedy/acting.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

I got my start in the 80s at Stand Up NY comedy club. Throughout my life as a serious concert pianist, musician, writer and educator, comedy has been a shelter and a lifesaver. I met Woody Allen for conversation and some comparative opinions on his work, our favorite book stores, etc and it sparked a further desire to do some acting in film, writing and improvisation. As an improvisor in my own field of music, improvisation always came naturally to me. I learned how to deal with stage fright from my professional family of musicians and some of the greatest teachers/performers of the world with whom I studied at Juilliard. Yes, the same place that saw Robin Williams and Kline and others do their thing. I hung out with actors on the third floor when I was not rehearsing music on the 5th. Made friends. Lived in LA. Wrote music and acted for films. Got published. Started a comedy concert tour aboard the historic Delta Queen steamboat line in New Orleans all the way to Galveston Texas. It's been a blast! I also met Tony Randall and learned more about acting and comedy from him in conversation and friendship over the years. Did 10 years of broadcasting off the top of my head on 3 different stations. Had a blast and made friends and a following. Interviewed countless celebrities. So, there is a lot to pass on here. I can teach you not to sweat the audience and to engage them with timing. To predispose people to feel comfortable and not to see you sweat or think out loud. Both are deadly by the way. I can teach you to make them like you when they are in any given mood. Good or bad, you can have a good time. So much is mental as you may know. We explore yours - which is unique to you. Material is also important. I am a published writer and know how to edit work and what to leave in. Let me know if you want to work on something and I will be glad to help you get there and beyond. Look forward to hearing from you. Oh yeh, I am supposed to write - look forward to working with you, aren't I? Well, there it be and there it is, but mostly we'll have fun.
