  • Amanda’s Advanced Scene Study Class is not just the best improv class I’ve taken, it’s the best performance class I’ve taken in general. She is incredibly specific with her instruction, pushing and pulling at each performer where they need it. At the end of each class, I walked away feeling challenged. At the end of the session, I walked away a stronger improviser and actor.
