IMPROV COURSES

LEARN THE ART OF IMPROV AS A TEAM OVER SEVERAL WEEKS ON OUR FUN COURSES.

DEVELOP YOUR IMPROV AS A TEAM

 

On our courses you will be introduced to a specific type or level of improv and hone your skills as a team over several weekly workshops.

 

Our format-focused courses may focus on Montage, the Deconstruction, the La Ronde, the Harold, or Narrative Improv. We also run courses for different levels such as Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced courses.

The courses are fully practical and take the form of a workshop. There will be fun improv games, exercises that will have you laughing as well as gaining a better understanding of how to improvise, and lots of scene practice!

PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES

Some of the courses end with a performance at the Dingbats Improv Jam. This gives you the opportunity to showcase what you have learned to friends, family, and the audience at the improv  jam.

Who can join?


If you are new to improv, we recommend you start by attending the weekly drop-in workshops or attending our Beginners Improv Course first.

 

Most of our courses are suitable only for those who are confident enough with their improvisation ability that they could learn different long-form formats! You can have trained with Dingbats or elsewhere.

Experienced Teacher

Most of the courses are taught by Ed Pithie, founder of Dingbats Improv, who has been teaching improv for over nine years. Occasionally the courses are taught by other improv teachers - this will be stated on the event listing.

COURSE DETAILS

The courses will take place over several weeks on Monday evenings between 7pm and 9pm at The Hawth Theatre in Crawley.
The number of classes per course vary. Some short courses are just 4 classes over 4 weeks, but most are between 6-8 sessions over 6-8 weeks.
