Testimonials

  • Just awesome.
    Ruby, Brighton, UK
  • Challenging, fun, with plenty of mayhem!
    Anon
  • A hugely fun and relaxed way to start your journey into musical improv, and just a lovely way to spend a day.
    Justine de Mierre, Improv Teacher, The Unqualified Yes
  • A smart, different approach to improv
    Lauren Bambauer, Improv Teacher, California
  • This was the most relaxed, unstressed and happy I’ve ever felt in my life. I just can’t truly express how grateful I am.
    Ben Stratford, Freshman, BYU
  • Simple instructions that turn out to be very useful. What has seemed complex, inscrutable and hard becomes accessible. You find answers to questions you hadn't thought to ask yet.
    Harvard Henrikson, Molecular Biologist, Norway
  • With Heather and Jules you will try everything in improv, and then, the opposite, and then the same thing, only different. They will change the way you see and do improv (for the better)!
    Luis Nogueira, Portugal
