I am dedicated to creating a workshop space that is safe and supportive. I am committed to protecting my students physical, mental and emotional health and will work tirelessly to provide a safe & secure place to explore & grow. I will, at all times, support my students artistic & personal development and will encourage them to embrace brave choices… even if they lead to what some may call, “failure.” I will praise my students in their brave-failures as well as their successes.
As part of a safe & secure workshop space, I will live up to the highest standards of personal & professional conduct.
I will not intentionally expose my students (or allow them to be exposed to) to disparagement, sarcasm or ridicule. I will at all times protect the personal and/or confidential information of my students and colleagues. I will deal with each student with consideration and will seek to resolve problems with understanding and an open mind.
I prize process & development above all.
"Scotty offered our community a space to be vulnerable and expansive and to grow a place to learn and experience improvisation. He shared his brilliance with kindness and generosity. The weekend was everything I had hoped for and more. THANK YOU! Until next time... with appreciation and gratitude..."

Principles of Improvisation:
Make active and positive choices
Support & enjoy the physical, verbal and emotional reality of the scene.
It’s an actor’s job to justify the information that’s been established and use it in the scene.
You are an important person and you have important things to say. Be seen. Be heard.
Be right here, right now.
