What class is best for me if I haven’t done any improv or acting before?
The Beginners Improv Course is the best option if you haven’t done anything before. If you can't make the 8 week course we also have a one day Beginners Taster Day.
Should I do an 8 week course or a one day class?
If you can commit to a number of sessions it’s better to do an improv course, as you get to progress each week and bond together as a team and learn at a faster rate. If you want something more flexible though then the one-day and one-evening classes are a good idea, as these can fit around other performing, work and play commitments.
Do I have to do a Beginners Taster Day before doing the longer course?
No. Everything we do in the Beginners Taster Day is also covered in the course. The taster day is there in case you can't make a longer course, but the longer course is the best option for starting improv.
Do I need any previous experience?
No. You don’t need any previous improv, comedy or acting experience to do one of our Level 1: Beginners Improv Courses or Beginners Taster Days.
How much improv do I have to have done to a non-beginners drop-in?
You don’t need any experience to do the Beginners Taster Day or Level 1: Beginners Improv Course. For everything else you need to have done the Beginners Improv Class, Level 1: Beginners Improv Course, or the equivalent somewhere else first. Contact us if you’re not sure.
What class is best for me if I’ve done some improv or acting before?
The Monday evenings, Thursday evenings and online drop-ins are all suitable for people with previous improv or acting experience.
What are the class sizes?
12-14 people on average.
What kind of people do your classes?
All backgrounds, all ages and all levels of performing experience depending on each class. We get everyone from never been on a stage before and doing it for the challenge or just for fun, to professional actors and comedians. You don’t need any previous acting background to do our classes. Everyone’s welcome.
What is the age range?
We are open to all ages over 18. Impro is suitable for all ages, we’ve had everyone from 18 to over 80. It’s physical but not more physical than normal every day life, and you are welcome to take a break whenever you want or sit out of exercises you don’t think would be suitable.
Is it quite sociable?
Yes, improv is probably the most sociable hobby going. We usually stay for a drink after all our workshops, conveniently located near pubs, and The Miller is also a great place to hang out after shows. There’s a massive and rapidly growing scene to get involved in.
Who teachers the classes?
Please see each workshop page for teacher biographies. All of our teachers are successful improv performers on the improv scene and regularly perform at our venue, around the UK improv circuit, The Edinburgh Fringe and International Festivals.
Thanks for the workshop. All the feedback has been extremely positive! The team loved it!
We heart you! Such a fun 8 weeks and such great people! I shall be seeing you again!
The workshop is supportive and collaborative and neatly strips out the expectation and nerves that result from comedic preparation.
Thank you for an awesome session this eve. Haven't laughed this much on a Monday eve for years 🙂
Inspiring, hilarious and richly rewarding. The workshop brightened up everyone's morning. The whole experience was a true pleasure and hugely helpful.
Great improv workshop with @hooplaimpro couldn't stop smiling from beginning until end!
Everywhere you look, huge grins suggest an enthusiasm-and an attentiveness-that is rarely seen in the classroom.
The workshop was just so much fun with an amazing teacher.
You really rocked it as ever, and I have heard nothing but good from the participants. Once again, thanks again for a splendid series of workshops.
