Throughout its 37 year history, Theatre on the Edge has always taught improv workshops for the general public. Hundreds and hundreds of people have taken our classes, and we hear over and over again how much fun they are and how learning improv has helped people in their workplace and in their social life.
Even if you’re never planning to perform, these courses are great for boosting your self-confidence, opening up your creativity, and improving your ability to think and react spontaneously.
The classes are designed to be relaxing, stimulating and always supportive. We create an environment where you feel safe taking risks and trying new things. Above all, they’re a lot of fun!
As a bonus, any students registered in one of our improv courses get to attend Theatre on the Edge performances for free! Watching improv is a great way to enhance the learning experience.
Please note that these classes are designed for adults (18 years of age and over). We may do youth or children’s classes at some point in the future, depending on the demand.
IMPORTANT NOTE — Our January 2018 courses are now completely sold out. There will be Level 1 and Level 2 courses offered starting in the early Spring. If you want to be notified when registration opens for any of our courses, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Improv Level 1
Our Level 1 classes are designed to introduce you to the basics of improvisation. The focus is on creativity, cooperation and having fun. They’re designed to give you confidence, and teach you to trust your instincts and work together as a team.
Each class begins at 7 pm, and typically ends at 9 pm or slightly later. The classes will be held at a location in Waterloo, and the cost is $90.
Improv Level 2
Level 2 is designed to build on the material covered in Level 1. Each class will focus on a different aspect of improv (such as Characters, Narrative and so on), and each will be a mix of theory, exercises and games. By the end of Level 2, you should have the skills and confidence to perform in front of an audience, and you’ll have the opportunity to be part of an actual showcase performance at Theatre on the Edge.
Note that Level 2 classes are only open to people who have previous improv training (e.g. our Level 1 course or equivalent).
Our next set of Level 2 classes will begin on Tuesday, March 6 and run for six consecutive weeks. Each class begins at 7 pm, and typically ends at 9 pm or slightly later. The classes will be held at a location in Waterloo, and the cost is $90.
Improv Level 3
Our Level 3 classes focus on further enhancing your improv skills. Each class will include a mix of improvisational games and open scenes, with a focus on providing guidance and feedback to help you polish your abilities as an improvisor. Note that Level 3 classes are only open to people who have significant improv training (e.g. our Level 2 course or equivalent).
Each class begins at 7 pm, and typically runs to 9 pm or slightly later. The classes will be held at a location in Waterloo, and the cost is $90.
