Why Improv, Why Now?

Without a doubt there's never been a better time to try Improv. We need to be flexible and understand how to form and maintain positive human connections. Improv skills can help with all of this!

So, this Autumn, try our fear-busting fun and friendly 8-week course of workshops to boost your confidence, creativity and spontaneity. We will use professional training techniques, exercises and games to fire your imagination and progressively explore and build skills to develop teamwork, listening, making and accepting offers, character and emotion work, creating scenes and stories step-by-step in a structured, friendly and supportive environment. The principles you learn in improv can be extremely beneficial in your professional and personal life. All welcome (18%2B)

Constantly changing and trying new things, this set of workshops will also be suitable for those who've attended our previous Improv events. You can never get enough practice at Improv!

Myth-busting! You don't have to be fast, funny or a natural performer to enjoy and be good at Improv. We each bring a brick and - together - we build a cathedral.

Who is this for? Everyone! People with experience of Improv and those who've never tried it before: actors, non-actors, performers, comedians, and absolutely anyone who wants to improve their confidence, relationships and communication skills.
