“Ali is a leader in the next generation of impro teachers that work in the spirit and philosophy of Keith Johnstone. We both hail from Loose Moose Theatre and drank the same Koolaid. It works!” –Veena Sood (Indian Detective, Downsizing, Lucifer, Bates Motel, The X-Files)

Teaching improvisation continues to keep me on my toes and full of inspiration. I am so grateful for every opportunity I have to share my passion for theatre and improvisation with others. I’ve been very fortunate to work with a wide range of students from ridiculously energized 10 year olds, to at risk young women, to post secondary theatre students, to seniors with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease, and many more in between. Every group/class is so beautifully different which keeps the work alive and inspiring. – Ali Froggatt
