Improv Level 1 – April ’24

Have you ever found yourself stuck for words?
Ever been expected to make a decision on the spot?

Are you looking to feel reconnected?
Want to do this in a fun and supportive environment?

Improvisation is a fun yet powerful way to release your creative potential in a fun and supportive environment! On the course, we explore the basics and fundamentals of improvisation both as a performing and professional skill. The course and workshops are designed to be fun and liberating as we unlock our creativity and conquer any inhibitions or fears we harbour when presenting or communicating through improv.

In the modern hybrid working environment with more face to face interactions, our need for connectivity, having outlets outside of home and work, and recharging our personal and professional relationship skills becomes important again. Improv is a great tool to further develop and enhance these skills.

At the end of the course, participants will grasp the fundamentals of improvisation and will be able to apply those new skills to your personal, professional and performing life. From speaking off the cuff, to bringing an edge to your presentations, improv will bring an authentic edge to all aspects of what you do!

Curriculum

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.
