Why improv?

Improvisation is the new black. High schools, universities and business colleges are now teaching improvisation as a mandatory skill for being creative, collaborative and for surviving in a new fast changing world. Improvisation teaches you to be confident, outgoing, inventive, fearless, not to be afraid of the unknown, and that you are all you need.

We’ve been practicing improvisation for over 20 years. All of our classes and workshops are taught by experienced improvisation teachers and practitioners, from curricula and course material we’ve developed in–house. We also specialise in improv comedy or theatrical improvisation — performing improvised comedy on stage. All of which teaches you collaboration, empathy, fine tunes listening and relationship skills, gives you or improves public speaking skills, and to top it all off makes you funnier. Why are we different?
