One of the good things to come from the past few years is the proliferation of online improvisational theatre classes and the ability to play in a global community.
My friend, Karla Dingle is an amazing actor who has provided a platform for improvisers around the world to play and study together. Karla is the force behind Queen City Comedy, with the best workshops and classes, shows in Charlotte, NC, and an online community that offers talented instructors and opportunities for improvisers to play together. I’ve had the honor of studying with Karla and she is a dedicated artist whose enthusiasm for this art form is so apparent in her classes. She brings great knowledge as well as compassion, and validation brings out the best in actors.
Karla Dingle (she/her) has spent her life on the stage. She began taking theater classes at age 5 and continued to study acting until receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Georgia Theater in 1998. Karla began performing improv in Charlotte in 2009 and continues to educate herself through workshops and classes at Second City, Hoopla, The Groundlings, and more. Karla is also an actor and voiceover artist.
