Bailey was a patient and generous teacher. We had a really fun, productive, and relaxed time. I left our lesson feeling much more confident, and super excited to keep honing my craft! I would highly recommend Bailey to anyone, whatever their level of experience.

Bailey is the best!!! I’ve always been afraid of improv and thought I was terrible at it, but they made me feel so confident! So happy to have been taught by them
