Denis Qiu

After a transformative term at ITS, Denis (he/him) became an advocate for more improv for everyone everywhere. As our corporate engagement person, Denis loves spreading the philosophy of improv beyond classrooms.

Before joining ITS, Denis studied and worked at the University of Sydney, wearing many hats. In 2023, his research project investigated how schema violation (a fancy way of saying “odd experiences”), plot twists in particular, could impact various aspects of creative thinking. Hit this webform if you want to know more about his findings, or book a corporate workshop with ITS.

Other hobbies: Denis is also an emerging bilingual actor.

Favourite improv advice: Bring your authentic self! No need to overthink.
