Intro to Impro - ONLINE

with Jim Fishwick


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 environment. 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 14 students.
