Improv Beginners Courses

I started doing improv at The Nursery and fell in love with it! Although I was petrified at first, they made me feel completely at ease, able to have fun and wanting to explore more and mix with this vibrant scene... I ended up performing which I would have never imagined myself doing before, especially since English is not my first language!

Level 1: Spontaneity

Complete beginners are welcome – you don’t need any previous improv or performing experience. This is the place to start your improv journey!

The Level 1 course is designed to give you a grounding in the key skills of improv. It’s also a great next step if you’ve done some one off classes and want to really dive in – or if you’ve done some improv before but taken a long break.
