What previous participants have said:
'I honestly couldn't recommend this course enough. I was terrified at the thought of 'trying to be funny' - this course changed my perception of improv and gave me a boost of confidence I would not have gained elsewhere. Teachers, actors, nurses, binmen... Nay, human beings - you need this course!!'  - Caitlin O'sullivan (Actor and Teacher)

'Gordon Craig - Edinburgh (Animator and Amateur actor)'Sarah's experience and competency were apparent from the first session she held for us. After a series of well structured workshops she had trained us all from complete novices into confident performers who went on to put on several favourably reviewed shows under her captaincy. Her knowledge of the various games in the theatre sports repertoire seems to be boundless and the feedback she gives at the end of each game is fair and valuable. The skills which we learned through participating on Sarah's course have helped us not only on stage but also in life. You'll find that, when faced with a surprising scenario, following the simple rules of improv will provide you with the confidence and conversational skills necessary to cope.'

Caroline Mathison - Edinburgh (Actress and Drama practioner)'I was a bit apprehensive about going along to improv at first, as the idea of standing up in front of other people with no idea what you're going to do was daunting to say the least! However, Sarah's energy, enthusiasm and guidance made it a fun, friendly and very safe environment in which to play, take risks and learn new principles and skills.As someone with a fair bit of previous performance experience and training, taking part in the improv group definitely helped me to be more open, spontaneous and vulnerable on stage, but it also boosted my general confidence to just 'go for' things in my everyday life. All in all, improv made me a better all-round performer and a more confident individual - and gave me loads of laughs along the way!'

Jon Davey (Professional Photographer and writer)'As someone who learnt Improv from Sarah in Edinburgh I can thoroughly recommend her courses. If you are in Guernsey and have interest in starting improv, or brushing up old skills, get along there!!'
