One Comment on “Tommy Galan”

  1. I recently had an opportunity to take a short 2 day(3 hrs a day) class with Tommy through my school district Cajon Valley. It was one of the coolest and enlightening experiences I have had in a long time. Tommy made improv relevant to the elementary classroom as well as to professional teams. It was a blast! His delivery, pacing, and personality was what made it such an incredible experience. Thanks “Terrific” Tommy! I look forward to seeing you live in the future.
