"Katie takes the best parts of everything from the playground to philosophy 101 in an improv class that cultivates everything from new friendships to professional collaborators."


Choreographer, Wannabe Comedian

"A mere TWELVE HOURS of class time with you resulted in quite a few new friendships, collaborations, work opportunities, and for me personally a newfound love of theater and performance that I might have never discovered without your leadership and encouragement. I appreciate you."

Liam Dick

"Katie was invaluable to making my solo show better. The critiques and wonderful enthusiasm she gave to me helped the show immensely. She understands comedy and timing so well, and she helped me really work on my stand-up voice and presence. So if anyone has a show out there that needs a director's voice, talk to Katie."

"I thoroughly enjoyed every hour of your teaching. You are so great at keeping the energy up and positive in class. Thanks again for your great work."

Eunice Bae Resume

"Often I sign up for courses to learn something, however, courses always mean more when they teach me beyond the classroom and give me lessons on how to solve the greater issues that I encounter in life everyday. Thanks to you, I took more than improv away from this course."
