Learn Improv with our courses

Nursery improv courses use acting and comedy skills to help you feel more confident, calm and mindful in social situations, as well as helping you build your creativity in a supportive and low risk environment. Our level one classes are suitable for complete beginners and those with no performance experience and will introduce you to the core skills of improv, and our five level syllabus will guide you from there there right up to challenging forms and performance skills.

Corporate Training

The Nursery’s applied improvisation classes take the skills we have learnt over ten years of theatrical production and applies them to contexts outside of the rehearsal room. Our standard classes use experiential learning to improve your company’s team dynamics, soft skills, ideation skills and creativity, but we can also design bespoke sessions, or even provide entertainment for your conference, meeting or party.

In addition to our core syllabus, the Nursery offers a variety of specialised and elective classes, including visiting international teachers and performers teaching specialised forms and skills, Women’s Workshops and a weekly LGBTG+ group. These workshops cater for a variety of skill levels and experiences and focus on specific areas.
