Sarah Rogers | Monkey Business Institute

Each improviser is as unique as a fingerprint. My job is to help students identify what strengths they bring, and learn how to support the strengths of other players.

How many years have you taught classes with MBI?

5

Describe yourself briefly.

I’m an irreverent rule-follower – a rare combination!

Favorites/hobbies?

I love Die Hard, Moulin Rouge, Queer Eye, Lincoln at the Bardo, “The Power” by N. Alderman, The Blue Album, Broadway Musicals, Queen’s “Don’t Stop me Now,” playing “Late or Exercising?”, going to see Rod Toughcurls and the Bench Press at the Majestic.

What’s your favorite part of teaching improv for MBI?

Laughing with strangers who soon become friends.

Sarah brings her positive, down to earth sensibility to each class. She creates a safe environment to explore new techniques and really makes sure you understand the teaching. And she’s been known to bring Kleenex (don’t ask us why).
