What past students are saying:

“After Improv for Innovation, I have a whole new appreciation for the supportiveness of my colleagues at ID. I felt empowered to relax and see where things take me. I learned to trust that people are listening to to me when I speak.”
Renee Albrecht-Malinger

“One hour-and-a-half where I forgot about everything else. I wouldn’t even take my phone with me, as I was only focused on what was happening at the moment both within me and with the team.”
Gustavo Cascio

“Improv was the perfect way to escape from the typical stresses of life at ID. Each week’s class gave me the opportunity to take a brief break and let loose, all while bonding with my classmates. It was a fun version of therapy, truly!”
