Voodoo Comedy Playhouse - Voodoo School of Improv - Denver Improv Classes"Lessons learned: collaboration can take you in all different and exciting directions that you would not have come up with on your own; our fear of looking foolish is irrational, because it stops us from going out there and making things happen; you are fearless when you know that your team believes in you and supports you!" - Anonymous Class Survey
Voodoo Comedy Playhouse - Voodoo School of Improv - Denver Improv Classes"The improv workshop at Voodoo was a great team building experience for our staff. We learned that we operate best in a controlled chaos atmosphere and it was a great way to help center our team. We also learned that improv skills translate to our day to day jobs more than we could imagine and it helped us be more present and in the moment. These skills will have a lasting impact on our team and we are very grateful to have such wonderful teachers for the afternoon!" - Anonymous Class Survey
