I mention the name Shawn Kinley a lot when I'm teaching at different festivals around the world. His work has influenced my focus in improvisation the most. Every time I get the opportunity to work with him I learn so much more. I can honestly say he is the best teacher and mentor I ever had.

Shawn is an amazing teacher, he will help you grow with such an honest and playful attitude and method. I was challenged and encouraged. I think that´s when my career as an actress and as an improviser finally and fully came together. I can´t tell you how many drama teachers I´ve had -did my master´s at RADA last year-
Shawn is still Top 5.

Shawn is one of those rare teachers who manage not only to teach the basic principles of improv but also connects them to everything we do in life, in a fun and safe way! If I had to trademark it I'd call it Zenprov! Shawn's probably one of the most experienced teachers in the world, together with his love for the art and humanity I can't recommend him enough.
