An introduction to the joy, fun and challenge of Improv.
What will you learn on this course?
As well as some of the basic techniques of improv, you will also learn to be more creative and more playful. This is a low-pressure, high-enjoyment workshop in a fun, friendly, supportive and stress-free environment. Improv is not the same as stand-up; you’re not alone on stage and it’s not about telling jokes or being really quick and witty. It’s about working together as a team with other improvisers to spontaneously create group stories, scenes and sketches.
Who is this course for?
This course is for adults aged 18+ years. It is aimed at complete beginners - you don’t need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience whatsoever. You don’t have to be clever, fast or funny either! Also suitable for those with some improv experience who want to revisit the basics, and for writers, actors and comedians looking to widen their skills and boost their confidence.
The course may be accessible for people with disabilities. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation and needs.
Do you need to bring anything?
