Fundamentals Of Improvisation (Online)

  • About this Workshop

    All the world is a stage and yet life itself has no script. In the volatility of life, no one knows what will happen next. And as life unfolds, we’re constantly making it up as we go along. One might say, life is perhaps one gigantic improvisation exercise.

    Once you understand the 5 basic principles of improvisational theatre, you’ll understand the applied benefits beyond your every day, routine social interactions.

    In this interactive and lively 2hr online workshop, you will learn:

    · How to think on your feet out-of-the-box

    · Overcome the fear of failure

    · Trust your instincts

    · Engage your creativity and idea discovery when you work with others

    · Boost your mood

    · Increase your comfort with uncertain and unscripted social interactions

    · Have a good laugh along the way


    With everything to gain and nothing to lose, it’s time to Improv(e) your life!
