Online Improv Intensive: Teaching Improv
About this event
Intro to Teaching Intensive: You’ve done hundreds of hours of improv classes, rehearsals and shows. You have read improv books, travelled to festivals, listened to podcasts and panel discussions and performed, performed and performed and you want to take the next step. You want to teach improvisation. But how to begin?
A pilot programme for a longer training in the teaching, coaching and directing of improvisation, this three-day course will examine how teaching works, what and how you might like to teach and some models for successful classes and courses. Guided by Nursery founder and former artistic director Jules Munns, you will reflect on the improv you have done and your core improv skills and beliefs, experiment with how to plan classes and teach exercises and think about how teaching improv might become part of your life.
This intensive includes:
- What is improv for and why would you learn it?
- Planning a class and leading an exercise
- Boundary setting, complex situations and negotiating conflict
Min. participants 6, max. participants 12. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.
Jules Munns performs with the Maydays and Impromptu Shakespeare, as well as being one-half of Ten Thousand Million Love Stories. He has performed and taught across the world, from Finland to Pakistan, Malawi to Canada. He creates improv blogs and podcasts and performs online for the Nursery.
