Brenda Glim – Actor
Brenda is leading an after school performing arts program, teaching improvisation and mentoring teens in the performing arts at Ocean View High School. Ocean View High located in the impoverished Oakview Community of Huntington Beach, has little to no opportunities in the performing arts and has limited creative after school opportunities for teens. Brenda believes that improvisation training is an excellent tool to develop communication skills like listening, responding and thinking creatively, team building, conflict resolution, and self-confidence. Brenda performs in local theaters, television, and film. She founded the Corporate Recess Players a Comedy Improv Troupe, based in Huntington Beach. The Troupe performs regularly in Orange County as well as customizing interactive workshops and programs to encourage business participants to discover their inherent creativity. Brenda has studied acting at South Coast Repertory and in Los Angeles with Director’s Perspective (Adam Collis, James Dodson), Jason Alexander and numerous others.
