Praise for the courses:
"I have been running cabaret events for over 10 years and I learned tons in this workshop." - Rachel Rouge
"I would like to take a moment to say how blown away I was. I went into both of these workshops with very high expectations. What Hugo delivered was far beyond anything I could have prepared myself for. The professionalism and personal connection during both workshops was phenomenal ... after two short sessions with Hugo Grrrl, I feel far more confident and prepared than ever before ... If you ever have a chance to attend a workshop run by this fabulous master: PLEASE, TAKE IT. I am overjoyed with the mental equipping I was given, and am ready to push myself forward and up in the world." - Ben Munt
