Here is a quote from Rob Snow CEO & Creator of The Improvaneer Method.

"The Improvaneer Method Zoom classes have been an amazing way for our teens and adults in the DS community to not just get their brains moving and growing, but to connect with one another in a very fun way.  We make sure everyone is very comfortable and understands that they do not have to participate if they don't want to.  Sometimes we have participants watching for a little while before wanting to jump in and play.  I can assure each parent and caregiver that these classes will be meaningful, fun, funny, and begin the process of getting the brain to move and learn in a very beneficial way!  Can't wait to get started with your group soon!"
