Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students rave about the Improv I: Fundamentals class, describing it as incredible and a lot of fun. They credit the brilliance of the teacher, Mark, who is not only passionate and smart, but also creates a comfortable learning environment. Students mention that they learned a lot in this class and were able to walk away with valuable skills. Quote: 1. "I learned that in improv, it's important to be present in the moment and listen to your scene partner. It's about the give and take, supporting each other, and building on each other's ideas. I feel more confident in my ability to think on my feet and trust my instincts."
