“Taking comedy classes here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. After four weeks I had a solid understanding of how to turn an “idea” into an actual joke ( you know, with a setup and a punchline and everything,) how to craft a set, and how to get on stage with confidence even when I was a nervous wreck. If you are on the fence at all, all I can say is DO IT!!!!! I promise you won’t regret it.”

Enrolling in the screenwriting class was an absolute game-changer! I’ve been writing for years, but wanted to dive deeper into it to really hone my skills. The instructor’s passion and expertise created an incredibly engaging atmosphere where I not only learned the intricacies of crafting better stories but also helped me discover my own unique voice. The class seamlessly blended theory with practical exercises, providing a thorough and enjoyable learning experience that left me feeling inspired and confident in my newfound skills!

I recently participated in the Creative Veins “Naughty or Nice” film festival. It was a great experience and very well run. The screening and awards show was a gala event and the “after” party at the Creative Veins Studio was very fun. It was my first visit to the studio and it was very impressive. I look forward to participating in future Creative Veins events and collaborating on projects with them.

We are still laughing about some of the things that happened that day. I wish I could upload videos because they are so funny. We combined two teams into one last year and this activity helped everyone to loosen up and get to know each other. We were fast friends after this session. I highly recommend it!

Rebecca is the BEST! I’m so thankful for her and for the studio. So much knowledge has been given to me, and I’ve been able to learn so much about myself, while also getting to work on my craft. Rebecca is an amazing person and an incredible teacher!

If you’re looking for a place that offers excellent acting classes for kids, a safe learning environment, and self-taping services, I highly recommend Creative Veins. It’s been a pleasure being a part of their program, and we can’t wait to continue our journey with them.

10/10! Looking for something new to do with my husband instead of just going out to dinner I signed us up for an intro to improv class. We loved every minute of it!
