• flexible & fun improv practice

drop-ins

A flexible improv workout for improvisers. You can come along whenever it suits you, be that every week or just once in a while, whenever you're free and want to do some improv.

We create a fun, friendly and supportive environment where improvisers are free to play and be themselves.

Each session will start with some fun warm ups and exercises on core skills like Listening, Yes And & Spontaneity before focusing on the week’s main theme. In the second half there will be a playful mix of games, scenes, stories and show formats.

You’ll be improvising in a fun and carefree way, getting lots of practice in, and having a laugh with improv.

This workshop is suitable for people who want to keep practicing improv on a regular basis in a flexible way. If you want to do a more thorough improv course take a look at our longer improv courses.

If you haven’t done any improv or acting before it’s best to start with one of the Back To Basics workshops below, or one of our beginners improv classes or beginners improv courses first.
