“"My first experience in Improvisation came as part of an Improv group Hal Peller put together. I was still an MBA marketing executive at the time. There was something about this positive training that gave me an edge at my job. Now almost 30 years later, I carry that creativity and the ability to heighten and explore every moment of performance with me each day of my acting career. There is no better training for an actor to help him create life or for any person endeavoring to LIVE their life, than what I learned from Hal Peller."

“… I knew I would learn a lot from Hal Peller after taking just one class.  He loves improv and it shows in his teaching.  Thank you Hal for helping me to embrace this intimidating art form.  I’m addicted too."

University of Georgia Professor and Author, Reginald McKnight.

“I somewhat reluctantly enrolled in Hal Peller's improv class in the summer of '10. Reluctantly, because though I am a university professor, have published several books of fiction, and frequently give public readings and lectures, I am, by nature, shy, a little socially stiff and awkward. But after just a couple of exercises in Hal's workshop, you'd have thought I'd undergone a full-scale personality transplant. Folks, I will never be an actor, but what I learned that day has transformed me as a thinker and a writer and as a teacher. It was like oil on all my rusty gears, like water on my parched inner gardens. And it was fun! I couldn't recommend anything or anyone more highly”               

Lettie Battle from the original cast of the Wiz on Broadway.

"...Hal Peller's Improvisation Workshops have been an inspiration to me... His genuine compassion is woven throughout the workshop... He provides an atmosphere ...conducive to trusting one's self. Yes, I have honed my improvisational skills, but more importantly, I have become a more sensitive and caring individual..." -
