Think of it as a gymnasium for actors where exercising emotions, impulses and intensity actually expands vocal, physical and emotional range, richness, flexibility and depth.

This is improvisation for actors rather than performers. Organic behavior and emotional truth are valued over superficial comic effect. We value risk-taking, impulses, a deep belief in circumstances and a personal sense of truth.

This is an active, focused discipline where actors work multiple times during every session - a great way to keep things fresh for experienced actors and a fundamental class for actors-in-training. Numerous improv formats are motivated by both internal and external circumstances.

Enhance your work with the lively, life-giving properties of Actor Improvisation. Confidence a big bonus!

N.B. All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to commit to the entire session and are, therefore, financially responsible for that session.


"You are a shining example of everything a teacher should be; inspired and inspiring, positive, challenging, interested, supportive, unbelievably skilled, intelligent and talented at what you are teaching us, and maybe the most important thing, you seem to love it! We are all so fortunate to have you turn your light on us, sweep us up into your beam, and inspire and help us in all the ways that you do. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”
Elizabeth Cross, Actress
