Level 1 2024

Embrace your spontaneity! Find easy ways to access a free flow of ideas, reduce the fear of failure, unleash your storytelling intuition, and have a great time doing it in a supportive, low-stakes environment.

This class is great for people who are new to improv, or who are looking to refresh their improv skills with simple, basic fun.

No experience necessary!

Level 2: The Character

Level up! Take the skills you’ve already learned and use them to create interesting, funny and engaging characters, through a blend of classical theatre and modern improv techniques.

You’ll discover your characters’ quirky behaviours and innermost wants, balancing the honest and the absurd, and learn how to work with your scene partners to find the emotional crux of a scene.

This class is only open to students who have completed Level 1.

Have some improv experience under your belt from somewhere else? We hold monthly tryouts to skip Level 1 and jump straight to Level 2 as part of our Improv Tasters.

This class ends in a performance showcase, where you can show off your sweet improv skills to impress your friends and family!
