DON'T PANIC! - AN INTRO TO IMPRO'

Dip your toes into the fun, interesting and exciting waters of improvisation. Meet others who want to try something new. DON’T PANIC is the introduction Improvisation course that will calm your fears, make you laugh and show you that there’s more to improvisation than what you might expect (it’s easier than you might expect and less pressure than you imagine). This course is great for people who love to be on stage and want to learn the core elements of improvised theatre, or for business people learning to feel comfortable with public speaking, or anyone who wants to have fun while learning to be more spontaneous, creative, playful, open and aware. Follow up this section with the PLATFORM & SPIRIT  section.

SPIRIT

Are you developing a growing appetite for improvisation? SPIRIT is a course of improv' training that you will keep coming back to.  Always something new, SPIRIT will push your skills and help you develop beyond the level you are currently exploring.  There will be balanced components of games, narrative, character,  theory, practice, play and personal development aiming you towards stage performance. This section of improv' training will adapt to the needs of the class and is geared to those who have explored the introduction course, “DON’T PANIC!”

STATUS

Status is the behavioural quality in all interaction.  It is not a constant.  You aren’t necessarily high or low status.  You are high or low relative to who or what you are interacting with at that moment.  Status moves and alters and defines our relative importance to the people and world around us.  Our friendships are defined by our comfort in altering the status relationship between ourselves and the people we are closest too.  Learning to play with status gives improvisers immediate skill in story and character that few others have.

This section of impro can be explored after the course, “STORYTELLING”.
