Ever wondered how the Impro Melbourne players learned to be the funny, spontaneous, riveting performers you’ve enjoyed watching in Theatresports™ or any other Impro Melbourne favourite? Or maybe you’ve been acting for a while and are wanting to expand your skills. Perhaps you’re looking for a fun hobby to share with a friend or are just plain curious to learn more about this constantly evolving art form. Whatever your reasons for considering an impro class one thing’s for sure. Regardless of your background, age or experience we have a workshop that will fit the bill.
Over the years hundreds of people have passed through the Impro Melbourne training centre. It’s the longest established impro training facility in Melbourne and we teach the theatre-based style of improvisation developed by the renowned teacher and writer Keith Johnstone. His theories are explained further in his books Impro and Impro for Storytellers and his philosophy is reflected in our teaching practices.
Impro Melbourne teachers are friendly, experienced and passionate about their work. They are internationally acclaimed improvisors skilled at creating a safe, supportive, respectful environment which is flexible and responsive to student needs.
Our courses are carefully designed to target and develop specific improvisational skills such as spontaneity, onstage collaboration and storytelling. Playful risk-taking is encouraged. Laughter and discovery follow. And as the process unfolds its easy to see why impro can be such a powerful tool in our day to day lives.
