Improv is theatre (or comedy) without a script. It’s stories and scenes made up on the spot. But it is many other things as well. It is a great way to build confidence and calm under pressure. And to work on your creativity. And to just meet people. It is also a way of looking at the world, at other people and even at yourself. All while still being guaranteed to make you laugh. Improv is a lot of things. You might call it yoga for the soul. Or mindfulness for show-offs (though lots of non-show-offs do it too).

Now, this all sounds very good, but what does improv really feel like? What can you expect from one of our courses? AndAlso’s taster sessions are an opportunity to dip your toe in and see what an improv class is. During the session, you will be introduced to core improv principles like ‘yes and’, support and being obvious. With a low-pressure group warm-up and a selection of group and pair exercises, you will get a glimpse of what improv really means. Come spend a zero-commitment 90 minutes with us and let us share a little bit of what we love to do. There may even be a discount for our beginner’s courses.

AndAlso welcomes anyone over the age of 18, regardless of background, education, physical ability, sexuality and gender, language or any other form of identity. We believe improv can be for anyone, and pride ourselves on making our classes accessible and friendly. If there is anything we can do to make the class more comfortable for you, just drop us an email on hello@andalsoimprov.com and we’ll do our best.

This taster will be held in classroom 4 (maths corridor) at BHASVIC Brighton.

    Lauren Bambauer, Improv Teacher, California
  • This was the most relaxed, unstressed and happy I’ve ever felt in my life. I just can’t truly express how grateful I am.

  • Simple instructions that turn out to be very useful. What has seemed complex, inscrutable and hard becomes accessible. You find answers to questions you hadn't thought to ask yet.
    Harvard Henrikson, Molecular Biologist, Norway
  • With Heather and Jules you will try everything in improv, and then, the opposite, and then the same thing, only different. They will change the way you see and do improv (for the better)!
