CLASSES

We offer drop-in improv classes and improv courseS for all experience levels.

Learn how to improvise in a friendly and supportive environment.
 
Our classes are where we have the most fun. You don’t have to be an actor or a comedian to attend – just a genuine human being who can listen and laugh.

Regardless of the level, all the classes consist of silly ice-breaker warm ups, exercises to learn new skills and lots of time to play scenes and practise what we’ve learnt.

Improv is the perfect skill to develop if you are an actor looking to enhance your skill set, a writer looking for inspiration or anyone looking to unwind after work and gain a better understanding of creative collaboration.

We run improv courses and drop-in workshops which each focus on different types of improvisation and are suitable for different levels of experience. Some take place online, but most are either at The Hawth Theatre in Crawley or The Archway Theatre in Horley.

Dingbats is also available for hire to run a workshop for your team, whether that be a team within a business or an improv group looking for an experienced coach.
