All The World's a Stage:
Learn To Make It Yours
Since 2013, Instant Theatre has empowered thousands of students to unleash their inner creativity in performance and life through our improv comedy and dramatic theater classes. We truly believe that anybody can become confident and funny on stage, and that every team can benefit from sharing the joy of the Agility/Improv mindset.
Improv Comedy is the art of spontaneously creating hilarious situations, memorable characters and moving stories collaboratively, in real time, without a script. Not only is it funny, it fosters deep listening, presence, spontaneity and self-confidence.
The skills and processes of improvisation are also used in business as a way to develop better communication, creative problem solving, and supportive team-work.
