This beginner’s course is a practical introduction to improvisation and carries with it the benefits that improv can bring to everyday life. It will hone your creative thinking and strengthen your ability to collaborate. You’ll find yourself more comfortable taking risks and more confident presenting to groups while also having a lot of fun. The course is founded on comedy improvisation techniques but no theatre, improv or comedy experience is necessary.
The course is ideal for anyone who wants to work on their sense of presence, learn to listen, increase their confidence or become more flexible and spontaneous. A fusion of US and British improv methods, the sessions will invite you to think on your feet and create characters, dialogue, scenes and games in the room and on the spot… without caring whether or not you fail. Communication and connection are key.
