Danny Balel

Teaching Style: I believe in organic discovery, emotional commitment, and allowing yourself to be goofy onstage and off. My style reflects these three components. Through side coaching, targeted exercises, and the release of laughter my classes focus on breaking down inhibitions and trusting your instincts. It is my core belief that being silly is as useful as being in control.

Bio: Danny Balel has been teaching and performing for over ten years. He teaches Theater at Clark University, and he has taught in the public schools of Worcester, Boston, Cambridge, and beyond. In addition, Danny teaches at Improv Boston, everything from weekly classes, workshops, to birthday parties. Currently he is a member of Improv Boston's Touring Company and Mainstage. He also directs the Top Shelf team Ghost Light, The Greg Show: A one Man Improvised Extravaganza, and Something Wicked: Improvised Shakespearean Comedy. Danny has performed with Kevin Macdonald and Joe Bill, and has taken workshops with Mike Birbiglia, Liz Allen, and Susan Messing. He believes that improv should be playful, focused, and above all fun. He lives in Davis Square, Somerville, and enjoys candied yams, big dogs, and baking. Danny was also interviewed by Jimmy Carrane for the Improv Nerd podcast (http://jimmycarrane.com/podcasts/122-danny-balel/).

Danny Balel

Teaching Style: I believe in organic discovery, emotional commitment, and allowing yourself to be goofy onstage and off. My style reflects these three components. Through side coaching, targeted exercises, and the release of laughter my classes focus on breaking down inhibitions and trusting your instincts. It is my core belief that being silly is as useful as being in control.

Bio: Danny Balel has been teaching and performing for over ten years. He teaches Theater at Clark University, and he has taught in the public schools of Worcester, Boston, Cambridge, and beyond. In addition, Danny teaches at Improv Boston, everything from weekly classes, workshops, to birthday parties. Currently he is a member of Improv Boston's Touring Company and Mainstage. He also directs the Top Shelf team Ghost Light, The Greg Show: A one Man Improvised Extravaganza, and Something Wicked: Improvised Shakespearean Comedy. Danny has performed with Kevin Macdonald and Joe Bill, and has taken workshops with Mike Birbiglia, Liz Allen, and Susan Messing. He believes that improv should be playful, focused, and above all fun. He lives in Davis Square, Somerville, and enjoys candied yams, big dogs, and baking. Danny was also interviewed by Jimmy Carrane for the Improv Nerd podcast (http://jimmycarrane.com/podcasts/122-danny-balel/).
