    Students Reviews:

    I'm an English teacher who took a SpeakeasyDC course to help with my curriculum story telling unit. The experience did far more than enrich my teaching. It was a deeply meaningful time that sold me forever on the almost sacred act of sharing true stories. A very talented and professional staff.

    I've taken two Speakeasy workshops and been on stage twice. Speakeasy coaches have given me great advice and tools on how to craft a meaningful story that is worth telling. In the process, I've made great new friends and heard some amazing stories by amazing storytellers.
