Discovering Improv

Discovering Improv

10th January – 14th February

Mondays | 19:00-21:30


Improv isn’t just about being funny (although it is often very funny). For us, improv is about building confidence, celebrating the screw-up and connecting with amazing people.

This six-week course is a voyage through spontaneity, creativity and connection. We’ll show you the basic tools to improvise both on stage and off.

This course will not only help you improve your performance skills but gives you the opportunity to connect with others to improve your confidence,  communication and interpersonal skills in a friendly and welcoming environment. 

Who is this course for?

  • Everyone! You don’t need any experience in performance or improv. 
  • Anyone looking to build their confidence, creativity and/or spontaneity
  • Anyone who feels like their face-to-face social skills are a bit rusty and want to shake the rust off in a supportive environment
  • Anyone looking to make new friends and meet people in Bristol
  • Anyone who has been improvising for a while and wants to fall back in love with it
