One Comment on “Niki Kalmus”

  1. Best level 1 teacher anyone can ask for! Niki’s like a rainbow and breath of fresh air all at once! Charming, charismatic, and dedicated to her craft — you can tell she really cares about her students and wants them to share in her passion for improv. I had my doubts about taking classes, but feel very assured at this point. If anyone is considering improv classes I highly suggest Niki!
