A fun four-week introduction to improv for anybody who is curious what it’s all about. Suitable for complete beginners, no acting/comedy/stage experience needed at all.
We’ll play some improv games, practise some core skills, get to know some new people and have lots of fun. Great for anybody who feels nervous about public speaking, wants to be more creative, meet new people, or just try something new.
Improvisation is a fantastic tool for acting, comedy, and life, because it means saying, “yes!” and supporting your team members to create a show. You’ll surprise yourself with the things you come up with, and be amazed at how comfortable you start to feel being silly on stage. You’ll meet some of the most positive and lovely people in the world at improv classes as well, and hopefully make some very good new friends.
These classes are suitable for just about everybody, no matter your background. The venue is wheelchair accessible, and most levels of physical fitness and ability can easily be accommodated. You’ll also need good basic English skills, but please don’t be worried if it’s your second language.
4 Mondays from 7-930, starting September 18, or 4 Thursdays starting September 28. Classes are held at the Nursery Training Centre, Capital House, Weston Street SE1 3QD.

About your teacher:
Karolina was produced in Poland and born in Austria. Being raised bilingual she always had a soft spot for words and was a bubbly child who loved to engage total strangers into random conversations, much to her parents dislike. She studied Journalism and Theater theory at the University in Vienna and became a journalist and editor. After some years of writing depressing news she decided to follow her dream, joined a small theatre in Vienna and started to take drama classes.
In 2012 she moved to London and continued to train as an actress. Her first contact with Impro was at the gentle age of 31 and she immediately fell in love. Through improv courses with City Academy and Hoopla she met the rest of the Improvable gang. Even though she is Austrian, she fails continously to do a good Schwarzenegger impression, but makes up for it with her many other skills, amongst them being able to cook 2 different dishes, being a really good driver, having a loud voice, and looking much younger than she actually is. She is also an actress, who performs on stage as well as on screen, a kids party entertainer and an enthusiastic ukulele-player.
