Description

What is improv?  Improvisation, or improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment. Often improvisers will take a suggestion from the audience or draw on some other source of inspiration to get started.

Learning improv will sharpen your ability to think on your toes, open your mind to new ideas, and give you a safe space to get back in touch with your silly side!

Take the gloom out of Mondays with our Improv class!
