www.imprology.com is a company that teaches improvisation, they run weekly sessions for all in London and also do a facilitator course for teachers. Improvisation is one of the best skills for teachers as it helps them think on their feet. Some people work out their muscles but with impro’ you get a first class brain workout. The games are always adaptable and are so useful in class to help develop visual and audio skills. Imprology even offer a summer retreat in France, 20 hours of impro’ over three days and four nights. What a great way to spend a few days and make new friends.
