Dundee Improv Workshops
Why Improv, Why Now? Without a doubt there's never been a better time to try improv. We need to be flexible and understand how to form and maintain positive human connections. Improv skills can help with all of this! So, this New Year, try our fear-busting fun and friendly 8-week course of workshops to boost your confidence, creativity and spontaneity. We will use brilliant techniques, exercises and games to fire your imagination and progressively explore and build skills to develop listening, teamwork, making and accepting offers, creating characters, scene work and story all in a structured and supportive environment. All welcome (18 years plus). Myth-busting! You don't have to be fast, funny or a natural performer to enjoy and be good at improv. "The fun is always on the other side of a Yes." - Martin De Maat Who is this for? Everyone! People with experience of improv and those who've never tried it before: actors, non-actors, performers, comedians, and absolutely anyone who wants to improve their confidence, relationships and communication skills. Constantly changing and trying new things, this set of workshops will also be suitable for those who've attended our previous Improv events. You can just never get enough practice at Improv!
