As a newbie to improv, I really enjoyed this course. It was a nice sized group and the activities were really engaging. Just wish it was a little longer, but other than that had a good time! Very cool teacher, too.

The session never started. I paid $10, got my zoom link in email, started up the zoom session, and waited 15 minutes after the supposed start time for the host to start the meeting. This was frustrating, but I contacted the responsible party who had been sick and who offered me two free sessions as a way of apology. I appreciated the attempt to make things right after that incident.
