​​​​IMPROV STUDENT Testimonials

" If you ever get the opportunity to do Improv with Lucy, consider yourself lucky. I brought her in to do what I ended up calling an Improv playdate with a women's group that I lead and the experience was absolutely phenomenal. We were all a little bit tentative about it at first, not knowing what Improv really was, but once she explained it to us and we got into it, she unleashed pure awesomeness. We had a blast. The biggest benefits were that we got to connect with each other in an entirely new way and were TOTALLY present in the moment, a gift we don't often give ourselves. It felt like being a kid again and not having a single care in the world. Everyone deserves this experience."

"Thank you for putting together such a fun Improv Workshop for our staff this week. Many have commented they were nervous about this part of our retreat, and that it was also one of their favorite parts of our time together! Thank you for the gift of Laughter and Fun. An hour definitely well spent!"

   -Kelly H., COO, Challenge Fdn.: thechallengefoundation.org 

   ​"Lucy's improv is about letting inhibitions go in a non-intimidating, supportive atmosphere of fun and    laughter.  We learn to sharpen our left brain memory & thinking skills with right brain creativity &    intuition.  Lucy's improv is not about performance; it's about acceptance."
   -Judy S., Adult Class

  "Keep your mind nimble while laughing and sharing time with old and new friends.  Pure joy!"  

   -Connie H., Senior Improv Class
