I first fell in love with improvisation as a kid when I watched the show, “Whose line is it anyway?” However, at the time, this was a type of comedy that nobody else was doing. Years later after watching an improvisation group in Dublin, I was asked if I would like to learn how to do what they do. I immediately answered, “Yes” as it looked like so much fun.
So, I took a five week improvisation course which finished with me and a few other people performing in front of a live audience. The experience was incredible. I didn’t want it to end, so I joined an improvisation group and practiced how to improvise with them every week. We also did a few live performances around Dublin.
When I finally ended up in Seville, I gathered together a group of people that liked the idea of improvising and we set up our own group. I have been improvising in Seville for five years now. I am in a group called “The Improvites”. We have performed five live shows and wish to do many more. During this time, I have also implemented a lot of improvisation games into my teaching and I have given talks on their effectiveness in the classroom. Not only does improvisation comedy allow you to speak freely, it also builds your confidence. I love teaching and doing it!

In this class students will learn how to play improvisation comedy games that were popular on a famous British TV show called “Whose line is it anyway”. At the same time, they will learn how to speak more spontaneously and fluently as they respond quickly to various different unscripted situations. Improvisation is excellent for building confidence and it gives students an opportunity to practise their language skills in a very natural and often entertaining way.
Classes are every FRIDAY from 16:00 to 18:00
