Not only will you learn valuable performance skills and life skills, but our drop-in improvisation classes are also loads of fun!

Come as often as you like, or just when the mood strikes you (book via Meetup).

Each class focuses on a particular area of improvisation, such as character, physicality, dialogue, emotion, group-mind, etc, but will be adapted to the group on any given night.


Performance is an important part of your development as an improviser, so throughout the year we will also have New Talent Showcases giving you the opportunity to perform together in a show. Casting in the showcase will be at the discretion of the show's director. From time to time, improvisers from the Wednesday classes will also be invited along to workshop with the main Impulse Theatre cast and to perform in a show with them.


Your main teacher for the drop-in classes is Jonathan Briden. Jonathan is one of the founders of Impulse Theatre and has over 30 years experience as a performer, director, and teacher of improvisation.

During times when Jonathan is away at festivals, one of the main Impulse Theatre cast steps in. These classes are always lots of fun too, and a different teacher always brings something a little different.
