Improv Skills Workshops

We all improvise every day. At work, school and social situations, we need to think on our feet. Learning and refining improv skills builds confidence and brings more play into your days.
If you need a weekly break from adulting, these workshops are for you!

BONUS! klusterfork workshop students are eligible to play games on stage at our regular shows at The Gordon Best Theatre in Peterborough, Ontario. Participation is completely voluntary. We know some just like to watch 😉.

LOL FAQs

How does a newbie prepare for improv?

Same way we all do, just show up, bring your best self and be in the moment. Some instructors encourage people being on their feet but otherwise, whatever is comfortable for you is best. Even the pros are a bit nervous before performing – use it as fuel to energize you! We create a safe place for everyone to feel comfortable. Since students mostly playing games in pairs of two or three, there’s plenty of time to watch, listen and learn. After all, we’re here to have fun.

What do I need for learning online?

You need a strong Internet connection and a device with working microphone and camera. You want a quiet place without interruptions. You don’t want to be near blenders and chainsaws. Nor do you want to wake sleeping babies with your uncontrollable laughter.

How many people can join on one screen?

Two people can share a device if they have both enrolled and will get equal playing time. No more than two per screen please.

What if I can’t make a class?

Since all classes are live and not recorded, sadly, we can’t make do-overs happen. If you’re taking online classes, always check Internet status ahead of time and come ready to play!
