“If you want to get in touch with the sense of play that came so effortlessly when you were a child, take this class. You’ll be supported by a wonderful teacher who listens extremely well and offers lots of constructive insight. You’ll also meet students of various (adult) ages who still have their sense of fun and exploration. I’ve found benefits outside of class too, by learning to take risks in a safe environment and responding to challenges.”
— Alan Cohen, adult improv student
