This eight-week course runs 6:30-9:30pm Wednesday nights from 10 February - 31 March. All participants are invited to showcase their skills at a student show on 6:30pm Thursday 1 April.

Payment plans and direct deposit available - see Payment Alternatives below.

In this class you will learn techniques to:

  • Relax your brain and go with the flow
  • Let go of overthinking and act on your impulses
  • Be present with yourself and others
  • Be creative on your own and in collaboration with others
  • Fail fast and fail forward with joy

Why learn improv?

  • to have a heap of fun!
  • to get out of your comfort zone
  • to challenge perfectionism
  • to become more confident socially and at work
  • to live more in the moment

You don't need any previous experience to participate. If you have learned another style of improv (for example, US-style improv, secondary or tertiary drama) this class is a good introduction to narrative improvisation. Narrative improvisation has the broadest application to everyday life and wellbeing.

Why learn improv with Cam Percy?

Your teacher is Cam, who does this for a living! Her signature warm and responsive teaching practice is informed by over a decade of experience in both improvisation and education. Participants in her sessions frequently comment on her ability to create a safe environment to take risks and develop. They appreciate her well-planned and paced material as well as her ability to respond to the individual and changing needs in the room.

Cam is a highly experienced improvisation teacher. She has refined her material and approach over years of teaching adult beginners. Cam is continually adapting classes based on professional learning and student feedback to offer the most fun and effective ways to introduce people to improvisation.

Cam is a tertiary-qualified teacher who has travelled around Australia and the world to teach, direct, perform and learn improvisation for over 10 years. Highlights include performing her original improvised show Swipe Right to an audience of 500, including the Australian Ambassador to the Philippines, and studying under the inventor of Theatresports™, Keith Johnstone in Calgary, Canada. She has also had the pleasure of introducing improvisation to a wide range of corporate executives - and the entire Queensland cricket team!
