Physicality is a kind of language, especially in improv. Jay's class helped to remind me just how important, nuanced and exciting it can be and gave me the "words" to use and showed me how to "speak" them with physicality. Jay as a teacher is like a clown's never-ending scarf bit. I'm not sure how he keeps pulling more and more interesting stuff out of his pocket, but there seems to be a never ending supply of it.

Jay reminded me that physicality is the foundation of performance and he gave me the tools to get there!

Jay was warm and welcoming. He was thoughtful in his planning and presentation. I really enjoyed getting to know him and learning more techniques to bring physicality to my practice.
