Intro to Improvisation

with Katherine Weaver

 

Everyone can enjoy the laughter and play of improvisation from the safety of your own home!  

Our Introduction to Improvisation covers the basics of online improvisation in a fun and supportive enviroment. This weekly class is a chance to have fun, be silly, let off steam and learn new skills. 

We’ll explore the principles of improvisation, for example:

  • Being present in the moment
  • Accepting ideas - saying yes
  • Idea generation 
  • Supportive play and collaboration
  • Silencing the internal critic
  • Improving your skills in communication
  • Active listening

Class size is limited to 10 students. 

What our students say

"It was great to use my imagination and be playful in a supportive environment. Too often I have to censor my natural response because it's not professional. Also, if you adopt the mindset of making other people look good, life is better."

"Katherine was compassionate, inclusive, non judgemental, considerate, shows vulnerability, passionate, light hearted, professional, great facilitator, very funny, all round amazing" 

"I am more playful, less critical, less hung up on things, more accepting, more confident, more assertive, better communicator. Better able to step back, observe what's going on, form a response, and execute it (instead of just freezing!)"
