Our improvisation classes are available on a drop-in basis, which means you can come as often as you like, but also have some flexibility (book via Meetup).

The classes will be run in blocks of typically 4 to 5 weeks focused on one particular area of improvisation, such as character, physicality, dialogue, emotion, group-mind, and much more.

The short-courses are designed to progressively build your skills as an improviser, so to gain the most out of the workshops, it is worthwhile attending as many as possible.

Our main cast work together every Monday (with rare exceptions).  While these workshops are primarily for the main cast of Impulse Theatre, we are willing to make exceptions!  If you are an experienced improviser, new to Christchurch, or perhaps just passing through and want to jam with some friendly locals and maybe even do a show - get in touch.

The workshops focus on a particular skill / idea (adapted as needed to suit the group on the night), followed by some general jamming.  Workshops are generally taught by Jonathan Briden, but throughout the year we will also have a number of guest teachers from within Christchurch as well as national and international teachers.
