Discovering Improv (Physically Distanced)

Discovering Improv (Physically Distanced Class)

7th September – 28th September

Tuesdays | 19:00-21:30


Suitable for beginners!

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.

In a post-COVID world, we want to give people flexible options to connect with each other whilst learning valuable skills in a safe and friendly environment. 

In this four-week course, capped at 8 places, we’ll build our spontaneity and communication skills through improv games and exercises whilst maintaining 2m physical distancing.

We encourage students to wear masks when observing in the audience and hand gel will be readily available.

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

Class Details

Places are capped at 8. Each class is followed by an optional social chat.
