"Brittany’s class took the fear out of improv and put the fun back in! Brittany is extremely funny, supportive and knowledgeable about the best way to approach the scene and how to find your funny. I’ve had a bit of improv experience but this class really helped me hone my craft. I recommend this class for anyone either starting or someone looking to brush up!" -- Dorie Casper, NYC actress
