Wonderful class.

Reviewed by Laura B. on 1/30/2017
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.
