Improv’ is a form of theatre where all of what is performed is made up on the spot.


Narrative improv cares most about creating a story that not only makes the audience laugh but has a complete arc from beginning to end. Narrative improv blends the excitement of spontaneity with the emotional depth of a traditional theatre experience.


Stories are a part of our everyday life.  Stories are how we share ideas with one another. Improv’ training is immensely beneficial for everyone in everyday life, personal and work. It encourages quick-thinking, positivity, flexibility, real listening skills and communication, team-work, awareness to subtle queues, playfulness and being open to new ideas and possibilities.
