COVID UPDATE: April 19, 2020
We continue to organize and update our curriculum for transition to on-line work. Please be patient. Improvisation is a highly social activity, using facial, physical, emotional and verbal cues. In light of COVID 19, switching to online service is a must, but we want to bring the best of ourselves, the work and the outcomes. Current work wrapping up kids classes that had been suspended is ongoing and practicing technical mastery of online shows has been both heartwarming and encouraging. We’re dedicated to keep our commitment to our members and students (new and experienced), and we hope to see you soon. Stay well and stay tuned! If you’d like to join our “drop in Mondays” class online, 7-8pm, please register here. New password every week, so you have to re-connect each week.
Adult Intro (18yrs and up)
Adult Performance (18yrs and up)
At Oakville Improv, we offer a range of improv workshops. To dip your toes, you may want to visit our “drop-in” class on Monday nights. For $5/person, you can try out an improv class and see what it’s all about. But to dig a bit deeper, our intro class will give you a more comprehensive introduction to what improv is all about. If you like it, you can build your skills in our higher level workshops, and even team up with other improvisers to perform in one of our many improvised stage productions. If you’ve registered with us before, you can email us at here!
This level is great for beginning improvisers, as well as being an enjoyable refresher for those improvisers who have had previous improv or acting experience. The workshops will cover a number of improv games and exercises and offer opportunities for students to perform for family and friends. All very low stress and fun. These classes are currently being held through the Town of Oakville at the QEPCCC (Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre – we like to call it “The Q”, but strangely, no one else does). You can register there through their on-line program connection Fall, Winter and Spring. In the summer, classes are scheduled through Oakville Improv. Schedules are listed below.
These classes are for people who want more challenging material after beginners and may wish to join us on stage. Participants may be asked to play in demonstration rounds in venues across Oakville, to raise their skill level.
Adult Advanced and Specialty Classes
Intended for those who have wider improv experience and are committed to working with a team. This workshop series explores more advanced scene work, as well as more challenging improv games. In addition to the final showcase, improvisers may be invited to perform at one or more local venues with more experienced players (eg. Theatresports)
