Donna Steele

When she's not on stage, Donna can be found making vegan treats, spending too much time on the internet, and playing with her over-sized cat, Bagel.

Donna loves helping students love improv. Striving for improv fundamentals to become muscle memory, she teaches you the tools to have all the fun on stage. Donna believes improv helps people listen harder, connect deeper, fill every room with laughter, and say yes to more in life.

Hailing from Richmond, Va, Donna completed her training in 2012 at the Coalition Theater. There, she performed with the house team Da Vinci for four years and is still on Slean Dion, a slam-poetry duo. She has traveled to festivals all across the country and tries to perform as much as possible.

Student Feedback
“Donna was the perfect combination of professional and relaxed! I looked forward to every single one of her classes because I knew I would learn a lot and have a great time while doing so. I never felt overwhelmed, uncomfortable, or confused. A great teacher!”

“I could not imagine having a better 101 teacher than Donna. She was always positive, made the class a very safe space for introverts like myself, and solidified my feelings that improv is a wonderful thing.”

“Donna was great. She gave honest feedback to help me improve my craft. She was engaged in our learning process, made it fun, and helped me continue to accomplish my improv goals.
