"The teen troupe project is really helping my daughter discover her own power. That's what I want for her." -Jennifer
"Since my debate club students took a Wobble Rocket class, they've become much more effective communicators. They are able to turn the debate around by thinking of their opponent as their scene partner. They listen carefully, and build directly on what is said. It's a very positive, growth-oriented approach." -Barb
"The evaluation my teenager received at the end of class was extremely insightful and helpful. It let me know that his decision to continue classes is going to be a very positive thing for him. I look forward to next session!" -Pam
"My girls learn more, faster. They stay focused, accept and build on the directions, and make brave, experimental choices." -Barb
