About William C.

I began teaching and performing improvisational theatre almost 20 years ago in New York City for one of the longest running improv companies in the country, Freestyle Repertory Theatre. I have taught thousands of students from every socio-economic background, age and ability, from CEO's of multibillion dollar companies to students in title one school residencies. My belief: improvisation is for everyone and the skills taught go beyond theatre. Currently I'm finishing my master's in educational psychology and can provide links to studies showing the positive effect improvisational theatre can have on students self-concept and their ability to listen, synthesize and collaborate with others. It can even reduce cortisol levels....no lie. It's spontaneity and acceptance makes everyone better! My teaching philosophy is unconditional positive regard and respect for my students and a desire to impart the fun of improv into the scene of Life. Even if you don't take my class try saying "yes, and..." more and always make others look good!

Will was extremely helpful. He went above and beyond helping me with my routine and suggestions for feeling comfortable and getting ready. I would definitely use him again if needed.

Will has a great way of guiding the team to not only work together but dial in what's working and phase out what's not. He's patient, encouraging, and most importantly honest. It's clear he loves the form and working with others to find what works for their team.

Will and I performed and taught together for years in NYC. He is the best! He really focuses on spontaneity and supporting his partner. When you work with him, you won’t have to worry about being funny or clever. He will help you learn to improvise in your own unique way.
