Intermediate Improv

COVID-19 UPDATE: We know there is understandable uncertainty around what the latest COVID variant means for live events in early 2022. Rest assured that, should workshops be postponed due to any potential lockdown, your booking will be transferred to the rescheduled dates at no additional cost or we will offer a full refund.

We are excited for the return of our 8 week intermediate improv course.  We focus on further developing skills acquired in Foundation Improv, or elsewhere that you’ve studied or performed.  We play with elements such as:

  • Character
  • Scene work and editing
  • Game play
  • Creating more depth in your scenes
  • Finding more funny in your scenes
  • Walk forwards and ‘gag’ games.

Please note that a foundation level of improv knowledge will be assumed for these workshops.  This will be a great way to build those face to face skills back up after a year of online improvising 🙂

Our next 8 week intermediate improv course starts Sunday 6th February 2022, 4-6pm, Gorse Hill Studios, Stretford.  The cost is £70 for the 8 weeks.

Drop-in options are available charged at £10 per session – drop us an email for more information. To ensure covid safe numbers you must contact us prior to attending.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions about the intermediate improv course. This course culminates in a showcase open to invited guests as well as the general public.
