Think on your feet and outside of the box! Learn how to face your fears of being in front of an audience! Enhance your audition skills! Learn how to be funnier!

In this improvisation course, you’ll have fun learning how to make up short comedy sketches on the spot. You’ll also get to play some of the hilarious theatresports-style games made famous by the hit improv show ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’.

Over seven weeks, you’ll learn ways to:
- Embrace failure
- Be in the moment
- Be a better listener
- “Yes, and?” (work with other ideas)
- Run with your first instinct
- Create whole comedy scenes from a small suggestion
- Be a supportive team player
- Connect with others

It doesn’t matter if you have previously performed or not, because we create a supportive and inclusive community in our classroom that feels safe and is loads of fun! Some people learn improv to become better at auditions or stand-up comedy, while others learn improv to apply the techniques socially or at work. Whatever your reason for learning improv, we can guarantee* you’ll learn techniques that will increase your awareness and skills that could enhance other areas of your life.

There’s no preplanning or scripts—so get out of your head, be in the moment, and have some fun with us!
*not a real guarantee; just come along and give it a go!
