An Improvisation workshop for beginners as well as old hands who wish to brush up on their existing skills. Apart from having great fun you will learn to think on your feet and to work better with other performers.
This is the best one day introduction to comedy improvisation available. Our expert tutors will guide you through the fundamentals of improv (unblocking the imagination, making offers, positivity, listening, collaborating) all the way to basic performance readiness.
Making use of exercises and games suitable for those attracted to both short or long form improvisation, students will pick up the techniques needed to create spontaneous characters, dialogue, and stories.
Whether you are interested in performance, in building confidence, in being quicker on your feet, in teamwork or simply widening the horizons of your creativity, there is no more entertaining way to develop those attitudes and skills than through improvised comedy.
