Glenys is an energetic, innovative, intuitive mentor who allows your authentic self to laugh, cry, rage or simply come out to play. I had so much fun, I didn't realize how many doors and windows her work immediately opened for me. Well over a decade later, I still swear that working with Glenys was the best investment I have ever made in myself.

This class opened my eyes to play in its purest form, showing me how to lead with my inner child. It helped me in many areas of my life. For example, I felt more comfortable speaking in public, performing improvisations, and with my authorship too.

Assistant Professor / Faculty and Education/ Brock University & Author of Jeffrey and Sloth, On My Walk, Gift Days, Chickens Fly, & other books for children.
Glenys helped me learn how to tap into my own unique, creative engine. I learned how to trust my “gut”, my inner source of creativity, and not to edit or judge my ideas, but rather let them flow without inhibition. Glenys creates an incredibly supportive and safe classroom, and encourages her students to freely express improviser, but also as a creative person. And I had a lot of fun!

The work I did with Glenys McQueen-Fuentes was instrumental to my creative development. Her class provided me with a space to feel safe as an artist, to learn to take risks and to embrace my vulnerability. Glenys not only provided me a space to grow and learn she helped shape the way I create & collaborate.
