"Improv was a scary word for me until I met Nancy! She instantly brought a light to my group and helped each and every one of us shine brighter. She was even kind enough to stay late and help us perfect some of our business improv skills - which have certainly paid off!! Thank you Nancy, we will be calling again!"
