CLASSES FOR YOUNG ADULTS

“Stephanie Herrera’s relentless energy is paralleled only by her depth of improvisation knowledge. She makes students keen to learn more, improve and perfect their art. What I like best is that they absolutely learn team-play with Stephanie rather than one-up-manship which tends to be their want. She can get them to do things that brings joy to my heart as their main drama educator. Stephanie Herrera is well worth your time and pennies…it’s merely pennies when you consider what she does with them in an hour!”

Lydia Hughes, Teacher, Sir John A. Macdonald
