Improv in English
Impro Academy is the international impro theatre school in Paris. It was established in 1999 and lead to the creation of Paris's one and only anglophone impro theatre company The Improfessionals (2001). It is directed by Florian Bartsch (founder) and Caspar Schjelbred.
We offer weekly impro classes, as well as specialised one-off workshops, in both English and in French. Whether it's for stage purposes or just for your personal pleasure - anyone who wants to become a better improviser is welcome at the Impro Academy.
Improvisational theatre is more or less what it sounds like: drama and comedy created on the spur of the moment. It's a highly personal and challenging art form; the skills used in improv - or impro - are an essential asset to anyone, actor or non-actor. Why? - Because this is the stuff of life.
Practise and develop the basics of improvisational theatre with us!
Thursday night: 8pm-10.30pm / Basement Studios, 9th arr.
Sunday evening: 6pm-8.30pm / Basement Studios, 9th arr.
We’ll build a solid foundation by exercising and developing the basic improvisation skills:
"Ceci n'est pas un cours de langue !"
Please note that our classes in English are designed to improve your improvisational theatre skills - NOT your language skills. It's not a problem if English isn't your mother tongue. But you do need to be able to speak fluently.
