Flintshire Funny Bone, Wales
I have been to quite a few types of acting classes both in real life and online. Very few can tap into my creative abilities as well as Karla does. When it comes to monologues she creates the space, both mentally and emotionally, so that you can really access the truth behind the words.
Powerful stuff. I count myself lucky to have been under her guidance for 8 very productive weeks.
Adamant Eves, India
I had the pleasure to take a class with Karla and it was stupendous. She really understood the seemingly wide spectrum of my and fellow participants' needs and tailored a perfect session.
The exercises and debrief flowed so naturally along with the details referring back to the expectations we had detailed earlier in the class. I would not only recommend learning from her but also watching her performances and playing improv with her- because those are learnings too!
Improv Comedy Bangalore
I attended a wonderful workshop session by Karla Dingle. She provided some absolutely simple and easy to remember tips to initiate and advance scenes. She answered each and every question the participants asked, above, and beyond the scope of the session as well.
One of the best parts of the course is how Karla exactly envisions supporting characters, scenarios that intensify the emotions of your (monologue's) character. The change between the before and after version of your monologue is a testament to this approach.You will feel the character in your bones. She will ensure that. Brilliant! I would totally recommend any workshop with her and Queen City Comedy.
Glossop Improv, England
I have been an improviser for 15 years and Karla's 'Acting for Improvisers' course is easily one of the best I've ever taken. The depth of her knowledge of improvisation and acting are clear, as is her commitment to create a safe and welcoming environment for her students.
Each week gave a new challenge and Karla's encouragement really made me feel as though I was developing as an improviser and actor. Difficult topics were covered sensitively and respectfully which allowed me to explore deeply personal and moving subject matter in a way that felt completely safe. I have recommended Karla's teaching to several colleagues and would urge anyone to take a class with her.
Student, New Zealand
I live on island on two very opposite sides of the globe. When I am in the same time zone as Karla, I want to take all her classes, time permitting. I find her a very supportive, knowledgeable, considerate and understanding improv/acting coach.
I have another online coach that I play a lot with and I find Karla just a bit more on task though he has a 2 1/2 hour session so perhaps it all comes out to the same amount of practice. It's always good to try alternative teachers and in comparison, I highly recommend Karla
Vintage Improv Festival, Boston
Karla is a wonderfully creative, loving improv instructor who goes the extra mile when it comes to incorporating playfulness in the numerous Miki’s Play Dates she has led at the Vintage Improv Festival.As an improviser,
Karla is incredibly versatile and plays a wide range of styles amazingly. I absolutely love working and playing with her.I love her imagination and how it expresses itself in the unique atmosphere provided in virtual improvisation.
I would highly recommend taking any class or workshops Karla has. She’s an outstanding instructor and person. There’s so much variety. She’s like an improv encyclopedia. I try to take every workshop/class she offers.
I’ve always walked away learning something new and useful. I believe she could teach anyone of any age. Everyone can benefit from her knowledge and experience. She’s always in tune, always considerate.
