Our Classes

Oakville Improv workshops are designed to develop improv skills in a positive, encouraging, and friendly environment. Our instructors are improv comedy professionals (yes, there are such things!) who have produced improv for stage and television. Our classes do not require any prior experience in improv or acting.

This was my first acting class ever.  When I finally decided to tackle it head on, and go after what I really want in life, I ended up in a class full of people who had fun and gave me confidence and belief that I could accomplish whatever it is I put my mind to.

COVID UPDATE: April 4, 2022

AS OF MARCH 1st, 2022  Vaccine passports are no longer required to enter the building at QEPCCC (where most of our classes happen). 

Although the Province and the Town of Oakville no longer require masks in the building, we encourage our students to continue masking due to the 6th wave rate of infection and the type of work we are doing. KN95 and N95 masks provide some amount of extra protection but also make it easier to articulate words by not touching your mouth.

CURRENT: ADULT PERFORMANCE AND ADULT INTRO CLASSES ARE SOLD-OUT for the SPRING SESSION.

STILL GOING
We are still offering online drop in classes for free for those who do not wish to venture out in public spaces – Wednesday Nights from 6-7pm for adults and 4:30-5:30pm for youth (Sundays at 8pm for Teens). Ask below.

Monday Night Drop Ins. From 7-8pm in Music Room #1, QEPCCC, 2302 Bridge Road, Oakville. You no longer need to register ahead of time but we do suggest you check in for cancellations (given COVID sickness rates, weather and other emergencies).

If you need further information about any of our programs and continued online shows, you can call or text us at 416-230-5967, or email us HERE. 

Adult workshops

Our Adult Workshops are designed for adults who are looking to build the skills to perform in our shows – or who just want to build their presentation skills or confidence. It’s a fun activity for couples, and a great way to make new friends.

Kids Workshops (8–10 and 11–13 years)

Check out our Kids Workshops. Improv is a wonderful way to build confidence, overcome social anxieties, and provide an outlet for naturally funny kids.

Teen Workshops

We also offer Teen Workshops. Classes available based on numbers. If you’re interested in participating in a teen class let us know at amy@oakvilleimprov.com

How long does it take?

Each workshop session consists of 16 – 20 hours of instruction – this is usually divided over eight classes of 2.5 hours for adults, and two hour classes for Teens and Youth.

We joined up because I thought it would be a fun birthday present for my husband, and it ended up being something we both love doing together.
