Impro Melbourne offers world-class instruction in improvisation for school-aged children of any level of experience.
Since 1996 Impro Melbourne has offered improvisation performances and workshops to schools in Melbourne and Regional Victoria. We are committed to developing the understanding of improvisation and believe strongly in the beneficial skills it develops in young people such as communication, trust and self-confidence.
For the primary level, Impro Melbourne is pleased to offer our FAIRYTALE COOKBOOK show and/or workshops for Years Prep to 6, and Drama Improvisation workshops for Years 5 and 6. Fairytale Cookbook is a humorous and hands on way for students to comprehend the elements of story and genre.
For secondary level we continue to offer IMPROVAGANZA! (previously Impro Zone)—an exciting and motivating performance that illustrates and inspires improvisation. Plus we offer tailor-made Secondary Workshops for schools looking for more advanced impro tuition. We also offer workshops that work specifically to VCE Drama Units 3 and 4, to galvanise the creative processes for students involved in working on their Ensemble and Solo tasks
All our work focuses on engendering a spirit of being in the moment, inspiring your fellow performers, listening, collaboration and above all, fun. For pure entertainment, or to introduce and develop skills in drama and improvisation, the Impro Melbourne team’s experience, training, insight and skill ensure excellence.
Impro Melbourne is licensed with the ITI (International Theatresports Institute) to perform and teach Theatresports™. We are the only company in Victoria licensed to do so.
Impro Melbourne is pleased to be a part of the RAV Arts and Education schools program.
