Improvisation is a great way to get the mind moving, reconnect with your love of play (we all have it, promise!) and get creative on your feet.
Become a great storyteller, listener and team player as you work together to create improvised scenes. You’ll be encouraged to take creative risks, stretch your imagination and laugh - a lot.
Improvisation is all about teamwork - no lone joke tellers in the spotlight here. You’ll learn to listen and respond impulsively, giving others the prompts they need to keep the scene moving. Everyone’s in it together and you’ll need them as much as they need you.
From absolute beginners to actors who want to build on their improvisation technique, we have a course to connect you with a group to get creative with and learn alongside. All under the guidance of an industry professional with heaps of experience in the London improv scene.

Level 1 - This course delves further into the main principles of improvisation and gets you using your physical and vocal impulses more playfully.
Level 2 - This course consolidates your skills from Level 1 and the Introduction with a more specific focus on improvisation for performance. This course also culminates in a showcase for invited guests.
Level 3 - For level 2 graduates and experienced improvisers, this course hones performance techniques with advanced performance games and short and long-form improv scenes whilst discovering more complex content and scene ideas. This course also leads to a public, ticketed showcase.
Improvisation is one of the core techniques used by actors. It stretches the imagination, sparks spontaneity and can lead to unforgettable performances. To the dismay of script writers everywhere, it has also been responsible for some of the best moments in cinema history! Jack Nicholson’s line, “Heeeeeere’s Johnny,” in the Shining? Improvised.
