This class will help you at work with presentations and public speaking, socially, or simply provide laughs.

What Our Students Say…

“Our design department’s Improv ‘theory & practice’ sessions with Tom Soter were a remarkable experience for all of us. Over a two week period, the NY Design Department at KPE engaged in theatrical improvisation seminars. Having now experienced these improv sessions for myself, I realized all over again that we’ve got a really amazing group of individuals here – sharp, spontaneous, thoughtful, ingenious. and, did I say creative? The excercises ranged from simple speaking to collaborative storyline generation.

Tom Soter, the coach, designed this program especially for us to encompass the challenges of the studio environment – presence, articulation, presentation, cooperation, communication. I recommend the improv approach to everyone. At the very least, I think that as a department, it ‘re-introduced’ us to the qualities that make us a great team. Thanks again, Tom!”

“Last night, I attended Sunday Night Improv with Tom Soter. I love improv. I believe in the, “Yes, and…” philosophy. Say yes and then move the story along. The one-hour class went quickly.

After a scene in which I was making a ton of offers to my partner, Tom gave me a bit of advice, “You don’t have to work so hard.” Wow! He also advised the class not to try to be clever, but to “Say the simple thing.” Brilliant. I’m going back.”
