Event Details

Level: Open

Designed for beginning students who have been bitten by the improv bug and can’t wait to get more!

Continue to hone the basic principles of improvisation such as ensemble, imagination, and “Yes, And…”.  Participants will continue to gain knowledge through group exercises and short form games that are built to be entertaining on their own as well as build the performance skills need to continue into our intermediate and advanced courses.

This course is built to both solidify skills established in our Beginner’s Course such as:

Jumping into the unknown with confidence

Collaborating with a team

Discovering the fun and then following it

And introduce performance skills such as:

Building an improvised scene with a partner

Experimenting with music and genre

Playing a character

If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.

This Open course runs for 6 weeks, 8 Sept-13th October, Wednesdays, 7.30-9.30pm UK Time.

Open – A class for anyone, regardless of your improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.
