Learn to improvise
Improvisation is making stuff up with your friends and acting it out. It's imaginative, collaborative, and a huge amount of fun.

If you can't find what you're looking for here, you can email our workshops director Francesca Hunter or call up for a chat on 020 7788 4080.

The Spontaneity Shop specialises in the techniques that they have learnt directly from extensive work with Keith Johnstone. The teachers - led by Deborah Frances-White and Tom Salinsky - have taught and performed for years in the UK and abroad and are the authors of The Improv Handbook, published by Continuum in June 2008. They have developed Johnstone's principles in their own work, so much of what you learn in their classes will be unique to them.
