Drama Impro Workshops - Impro Melbourne

Improvisation is a great way to develop self-confidence and explore the imagination. It is essential in any Theatresports™ work, and valuable in any rehearsal process. These Workshops encourage creative play, active participation and lots of laughter. Students are introduced to the principles of spontaneous improvisation, including teamwork, cooperation, trust, respect for others' ideas, and dealing light-heartedly with failure. These are the elements of successful Theatresports™ games work and performance.

Linking to VELS levels 4, 5 and 6 these workshops directly address interpersonal development and personal learning including sharing of ideas, teamwork, creative thinking, sharing ideas, responding and communicating. The skills learned can also lead to creative writing and scripted performance making.

Impro Melbourne's teachers are passionate, highly experienced professional actors who love inspiring creativity in students. Their instructors teach at various arts institutions, including the Victorian College of the Arts, St Martin's Theatre, The National Theatre, NICA and Malthouse Theatre, and they have toured internationally.
