Find your voice with 'We Are Improv'

Katy Bateson
Lancaster's very own We Are Improv are going to be kicking the new year off with some great new courses to help you start the new year as you mean to go on.  The courses they are running in early 2013 are all focused on using improvisation to help you to achieve goals.

We Are Improv is run by Katy Bateson who has been improvising for many years and is very passionate about it, attending courses, workshops and festivals all over the UK. She tells VL that she wants to share the happiness, joy and exhilaration that she has experienced through improvisation.

For those of you that haven't heard about improvisation Katy explains:
"Improvisation is acting spontaneously without a script. You react to your surroundings and your fellow course mates. The courses offer a safe environment to have fun and to play, with no criticism or negativity. You don't need to be a comic, you don't need to have any acting experience, all you need is you!

"Improvisation is a team activity where you are encouraged and supported by the other members of your group. The courses are person centred and you will play different games and act out scenarios to create unique scenes that will leave you smiling for days. If you are the type of person who enjoys having fun, laughing and meeting new exciting, interesting people then improvisation is for you!"

If you'd like some of that, the following 4 week courses will be running in early 2013:

Improvisation to embrace your inner child - January 2013
Improvisation for self-belief and self-confidence - February 2013
Improvisation for Stress relief - March 2013
Improvisation for public speaking - April 2013

All courses have limited places to ensure small group sizes.
The courses cost £80 for the 4 weeks and take place on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm.
