Improvisation - Level 1

Build a solid foundation in the core skills of Improv on our Improvisation - Level One course.

More in-depth than our one day workshop and suitable for absolute beginners, this course will get your mind moving and energised through a series of games and exercises. You will build a creative, supportive and playful improv team.

Start learning and practicing the techniques needed to be a spontaneous and confident improviser. With a focus on short-form scene work, this course will give you the chance to discover more of your own creativity, imagination and build on your storytelling skills.

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.

Improvisation – Level 1 tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
