Intermediate Improv

Perfect for anyone looking to expand their improv skills, stay creative and meet improvisers of all ability levels!

Note: This course suitable for ages 17+

Keep on learning and stay connected through these advanced classes. The next full course will commence September/October 2024 (Dates TBC) and will run for 8 sessions. You can book on the whole course or attend on a drop-in basis. On this page you will find booking information both our next full course AND our ongoing drop-ins.

This course is an opportunity to further develop skills acquired in our Foundation Improv or equivalent course. We have a rolling curriculum with new workshops every time so the course can be taken multiple times. We cover a wide range of skills such as:

  • Character work
  • Scene work and editing
  • Finding the game of the scene
  • Adding more depth to your scenes
  • Finding more funny in your scenes
  • Walk forwards and 'gag' games
  • Specific skills such as musical improv

Please note that a foundation level of improv knowledge will be assumed for these workshops. If you are new to improv you should take our Foundation Improv course instead.

The full cost of the course is just £75. We continually work to keep workshops as affordable as possible. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need to set-up an alternative payment plan.

You can also book a space as a gift for friends, family or a colleague. These bookings must be paid in full. Please leave a note when making the booking that this is a gift including the recipients name. We will then contact you for the information of the person you have made the booking for and to send you a gift certificate.

Workshops run Saturday Afternoons 3-5pm for 8 sessions in the rehearsal spaces in the New Adelphi Building at The University of Salford. Due to venue unavailability, there will be no workshop on 17th February so the course will conclude Saturday 16th March. There are plenty of nearby paid parking options nearby and the building is just a short walk from Salford Crescent Station and several major bus routes.

The current course will conclude with a showcase event at Fierce Bar, Manchester on Friday 22nd March. This event is free to attend so be sure to invite family and friends to support you and all the other acts!
