Deana Criess

Teaching Style: I am your biggest cheerleader, your biggest fan and your most supportive critic. You learn and get better when I am doing my job, and my job is to tell you what you need to work on. I will set you up for success, I will give you the tools to achieve what I am asking of you, and I will assume you can do this - because if we have the right approach you can. We will work, you will be pushed and all the while you will know that I am on your side. There will be sweat, there will be challenges, and there will always be joy.

Bio: Deana Criess is the Director of ImprovBoston’s National Touring Company and is a member of ImprovBoston's Mainstage and Musical Improv Casts.

Instructor:

Jackie Arko

Jackie teaches levels 301 and 401, introducing students to what she considers to be the most challenging and rewarding long form structure: the Harold. She takes a theme-based approach to the form and pushes students to explore - and stick with - the realities they create. Her teaching style is linear, transparent, and includes a variety of hastily-drawn yet highly-informative visual aids. The passion she feels for teaching and for the Harold itself is evident from day one. Also, she swears. A lot.
