TAKE YOUR IMPROV TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The Dingbats Improv Labs are similar to our our Workshops, but we'll putting our improv skill under a powerful microscope and poking it with a spatula. What that means is that it's for experienced improvisers.
As well as doing exercises to further develop our teamwork and listening skills, the Labs will focus on learning advanced techniques, long-form structures, narrative and Game of the Scene.
Each week is something completely different and exciting! One week we might be diving deep into character and the next week we could be practicing new long-form structures. regardless of the topic, they are guaranteed fun and great way to develop your skills further.
WHO can join?
The labs are open to experienced improvisers.
Technically there are no pre-requisite courses or classes and anyone could book a place. However, we will expect knowledge and experience of all the basic improv skills.
You don't have to have trained with Dingbats before, you could have trained elsewhere. We recommend that you have over 6 months of experience improvising.
All our drop-in classes are open to people over the age of 17. We can run bespoke workshops for younger groups. Enquire here.
If you are new to improv, you will love our drop-in Improv Workshops.
The Labs are taught by Ed Pithie, founder of Dingbats Improv, who has been teaching improv for over eight years.
Occasionally we get a special guest improv teacher to impart their wisdom.
WHEN? WHERE? AND HOW MUCH?
The Labs will take place on occasional Wednesdays and Tuesdays 8pm - 10pm GMT. Keep an eye on the ticketing site for upcoming Labs.
They will mostly be taught at The Archway Theatre in Horley, but may sometimes take place at The Hawth in Crawley.
These are drop-in workshops so you don't have to book for a whole term. You can book as many or as few as you like. A place at a Lab is £9 + booking fee.
