Improv Gym at Point Break Drama is quite easily one of the most challenging and ridiculously fun classes you can take. All our time as adults spent controlling impulses, outcomes and behaviour gets chucked out the window in favour of acting completely on instinct, as well as learning to be genuinely present & playing as a team with a bunch of complete strangers. The results of the games can be fascinating and absolutely riotous. It cracks your head open to a whole new way of thinking and has added a new edge & courage to all the work I do. Erika Heynatz ( Home & Away, Family Law, Children of the Corn, Rocky Horror Picture Show)
