What People Are Saying
“Amanda Rountree’s skill as an instructor is top notch. Her insight is amazing, and it is matched by her succinctness in giving constructive and critical feedback. She offers the learner clear directions on their path of development in the art of improvised theater and a deeper understanding of the nuances of performance.” -Brad Fortier, Director of Education, The Brody Theater, Portland, OR
“Amanda’s workshop was just what I needed. It pushed me to go to new places, gave me new perspective, and was above all really, really fun. Her teaching style focuses on the improviser going somewhere, not just making the audience laugh. Which allowed us all to go amazing places that the audience would have never expected. She’s playful, respects the art-form and wants all her students to succeed. I hope everyone gets to spend time studying with Amanda Rountree.” -Adam H., Chicago
“Amanda makes it easy to be vulnerable.” -Gene Joe, Austin, TX
“Amanda, thank you for the workshop! I love your practical and fun approach to improv. The idea of bringing more of myself to the stage has helped my improv tremendously. I felt like I relearned exercises that I’d known for years in a way that finally connected me to them and gave them new life. You rock!” -Galen E., Bellingham, WA
“Amanda’s honest, lovable personality oozes right into her workshops. I walked into a room with about 15 strangers, and I walked out of that room feeling like I’d just hung out with my buddies on a Saturday afternoon. She knows the importance of taking the time to establish an environment of acceptance, openness and trust, and that makes all the difference in the learning experience! SIGN UP, ALREADY!” -Jeremy Chapman, Chicago
