Misch Whitaker

Teaching Style: I truly enjoy introducing people to the world of improv and because of that I'm passionate about the early levels. My class is a safe, comfortable space for people to explore their creativity and imaginations without fear of judgement or failure. I move through exercises at the pace of my students and provide direct side coaching to ensure that every one is getting the most out of each drill. In between exercises I leave room for questions or clarifications so that each new skill set can be understood before moving on to the next. Each weekly class leading up to the Showcase Show ends with an opportunity for students to process and reflect with one another about their progress so that my students can grow not only as individuals but as a cohesive team who will be able to support one another fully on stage at the end of eight weeks.
