“Beginner Improv was a great way to stretch myself. . . Will was an awesome teacher who made learning just feel fun! The group was great. I can’t wait to take another class with Act II!” -Darice

“Will is an amazing teacher. He is naturally talented, genuine, bright, witty, lives the tenets of improv and totally enjoys his work.” -Rose Marie

“This is my attempt to convince anyone that thinks this is out of their wheelhouse or there isn’t anything you can get from doing this class, TO JUST GO FOR IT! I can almost guarantee you’ll have fun, learn some lifelong social skills, and maybe make a friend! I found the environment, the teacher and the rest of the class to be nothing short of wonderfully supportive, funny and engaging. Leave your baggage at the door and come on in!” -Jill

“Will was phenomenal as our instructor and I learned so much not only about improv but about listening and responding positively! The world would be a much happier place if everyone took Will’s improv class!” -Linda

“This class was so much more than anticipated. Through thoughtful and organized planning, the instructor, Will, put everybody at ease and gave us all confidence. Although he was prepared and in charge of what was happening, he gave us all the feeling that it was our input – our partnership – that made the outcome successful. It was also an immense amount of fun with the group laughter becoming contagious. The class members were supportive of one another and the natural anxieties associated with talking gibberish, acting out scenarios without words, and taking turns in give and take situations. The learnings from this class can be applied to many areas of life.” -Kathy

“Throughly enjoyed the process of stepping out of my comfort zone. Will made me feel safe in doing so and excellently guided the class through the tenets of improvisation.” -Karen

“Each night at the close of class I came away with a huge smile on my face and in my heart. I laughed well beyond the time of the class. I found I had much to share skill wise with my family about listening with care, showing up and bringing what you can to each day!” -Amy
