Testimonials:

“I would recommend anyone who has a zeal for self-expression and art to join this workshop! It is a safe and inclusive environment for all, even those with little to no previous improv exposure like myself. Kwantlen Improv has been an experience unlike any other I’ve had the privilege to take part in. I find myself growing each week with newfound appreciation for diversity in expression and interpretation.”

~ Shahina Hakik

“Daniel Chai’s Kwantlen Improv workshops are fun, engaging, and an excellent place to meet new people and make new friends. Daniel instills a sense of acceptance, humour, and creativity that helps participants break out of their shells and explore the imagination as an individual and as a group. Everyone should at least try the workshop once and experience the excitement during and the euphoria after.”

~ Rhejis Wicks

“Daniel is one of the most helpful teachers I’ve had since graduating high school. I will usually have one or two chats with Daniel per workshop, during the break and after class, where he gives me a generous amount of his undivided attention to provide constructive yet uplifting feedback. I actually have a note on my phone full of things I’ve learned during the class that I refer to every couple of days to try and keep in mind throughout my day.

I would highly recommend this class to any of my friends. I definitely feel that the class is helping me with my social confidence and moving along with my gut feeling rather than suppressing it. Aside from all the personal stuff, the class is just really fun overall! I love all the games we play, it really helps take the edge off before getting into scenework. It’s a very open and safe space.”

Cross-border improv connection at The Upfront

We just want to give a big shout out to The Upfront Theatre for showing our Jordan Krahn and Daniel Chai a good time last Friday night at the Blender show. They came back and shared stories about meeting some very hilarious, down-to-earth players (from the Upfront and Dead Parrot’s Society), the great scenes during the two shows, and the sweet crowds who made them feel right at home! It was both Jordan’s and Daniel’s first cross-border improv experience and they are understandably stoked to get back on the road again soon!

Next time any of your are in Vancouver, make sure to come and say hello. We’d love to have you join us on our stage too!
