Course: Improv – Level 1

What is Improvisation (improv)?
Improv means actively listening and reacting without pre-planning. It encourages us to be
adaptable. We do this throughout the day – E.G. Forced to make a decision without all of the facts,
being put on the spot, negotiating a deal, brainstorming meetings, the list goes on. By using the core
principles of improvisation; collaboration, communication, creativity and fun – we can react more
flexibly and spontaneously while at the same time build our confidence. In the current economic
environment, individuals are expected to be highly adaptable and rise to many unseen challenges.
