This course is not suitable for complete beginners

Tell me about the course
Now you know all the basics of improvisation, we'll show you how to refine and develop your skills beyond simple game play allowing you to add to the texture of your scene work.

We'll be looking at:

  • Body language and status - what signals are you giving off in social interactions and how to they relate to character work?
  • How we can create instant characters
  • Building an environment for our characters to inhabit
  • How emotions can drive a scene
  • Going beyond individual scenes to create a simple story structure

We'll also continue to develop spontaneity and creativity, as well as remove the habits that can limit success in impro.

Who are our teachers?
There will be TWO tutors - both regular performers and both experienced teachers who are used to teaching everyone from students at drama school, to trainee GPs and computer programmers. They are experts in providing a safe and relaxed atmosphere in which to learn, experiment and have fun.

Group Size
The group size is limited to 16 people so there is always someone to help if needed.

Quotes from some of our past students

"Building on the Intro
to Impro course, this
was an excellent way
for me to develop my skills further. It also allowed me to flex
my muscles in areas
I'm interested in - storytelling and narrative."

Francis Renwick

"Id like to say just how life affirming the course was by stimulating the endorphins & synapses. And there is nothing lovelier than making people laugh."
Rowena Morgan

"I found the tutors not just helpful but very encouraging. They both knew exactly what they were teaching and brought it across with clarity. I felt that I
learnt a great deal."
