I had a great time and learned a lot at the class. I am looking forward to coming to another class. I live over two hours from the class, but it was so worth the drive!

This class was very good. It was taught by a British guy, I think his name was Todd or Tom. We did a lot of improv exercises that I haven't done in other improv classes. Also, Tom gave a lot of good pointers during the class. Another cool thing about the class was that we conducted a good potion of the improv class on a stage.

Great instructor, but the age range was too broad. I wanted a class that was all teenagers, and there were a bunch of middle-school kids in the class.

My daughter loved this class. We will be returning to take more classes. It's very helpful for kids learning to think quickly and on the spot. Aside from warm ups and teaching the kids some very helpful tips on things like how to conduct yourself on stage, the class played fun games that teach kids to think outside the box while allowing them to be creative. Shy kids will fit in. The teachers made sure each child got a turn. This helps with shy kids that are afraid to speak up. I was impressed on the patience of the two teachers that were running the class. Kids even get an open mike to tell a story. The one complaint I do have is the cleanliness of the bathrooms. I'd make sure to help the kids so they don't touch anything. Other than that, I loved the class. I'm very happy we purchased this!! Coursehorse makes purchasing so easy and you earn points for classes!!!
