Attended: Improv + Communication Skills for Women


Awesome class! I really appreciated the instructor asking what our individual goals were for taking the class, and then providing personal attention to improve those specific skills. Super helpful and thanks for facilitating such a supportive environment!

I felt that the underpinnings of the class were well thought out and based on proven research on how individuals perform their best. ie, their body is relaxed, they are laughing, no criticism, no scoring and then it moved to body language and positioning, then communication skills with standing "up" owning your voice, establishing eye contact, and last but not least get rid of the nasty voice in your head and focus on what you bring to the party..... Very strong underpinnings Olive!! I got your number!!

Olive was a great instructor, as she was engaging, vibrant, and understanding. Adjusts nicely to the different skill sets and personalities that show up by asking us our struggles with communication and how that manifests! Would recommend.

Attended: Speak Up: Using Improv for Presentation/Public Speaking


I enjoyed the activity and exercises; however, if the class was a about public speaking, we probably should've practiced more of that. It's challenging though, since it was only 3 sessions. Perhaps more sessions next time?

was my first evening course in a while, and the tempo and pace was perfect. Class was small enough to be personal and more informational, lots of time for questions. I enjoyed it.

This is a great and fun class! The instructor was very engaging and addressed our needs for coming to this class. My only critique is that this class should be at least a 5 weeks course since it takes time to cement and practice what we have learned. I had a lot of helpful take aways!
