Introduction to Improv - 10 week evening class

7:30 to 9:30pm, Monday evenings from 16th September to 18th November 2019
TBC - will be central Norwich

This course is designed for people who are completely new to improv, have a bit of experience, or haven't improvised for a while and want to get back in the saddle. Anyone who wants to can do this course.

Over the 10 weeks of this course, you will learn the fundamentals of this wonderful artform. You will learn through group exercises, games and scenework and progress towards a grounding in both of the main improv styles - short form ('Whose line is it anyway?' style games) and long form (more character and scene based improv).

There will be an opportunity to perform in a friends and family show at the end of the course. This is optional, but most find they want to perform in the show by the end of the course.

PLEASE NOTE: this is not a casual course, we ask that people only sign up if they can make at least 8 of the 10 classes.
