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. Improv is more than just making it up on the spot, however - there are a set of rules and guidelines to adhere to. Participants will learn the basic rules through practicing games and simple scenes. 

This class is open to anyone aged 13 or older. Whether you’re a performer, graphic designer, public speaker, sales representative or lawyer, improv is for anyone who wants to have fun while they learn. Improv can help you to build your business skills and help you get over cocktail party anxiety.
