  Category: Other[All day event] 4th Annual Maydays Improv Intensive
Description:
“It was truly amazing to be in this beautiful place, learning and laughing with so many lovely people. I really feel that the intensive focus from the Maydays teachers has transformed my improv game.” Spring 2014 Improv Intensive participant. How would you like to spend four days in a grand old house in the Dorset countryside this spring, intensively studying improv with some of the best teachers in the UK and some of the loveliest fellow students you could ever hope to meet? If this sounds good to you, then we invite you to be part of the Maydays Improv Intensive from 21st-25th March 2018. About you: You’ve studied some improv – you have a good grasp of the basics but now you’re looking for a way to take your game to the next level. You want to push the limits, dig deeper, sharpen your instincts and really connect with your inner improv genius. About the course: The Maydays Improv Intensive was designed specifically to help you grow towards that goal. Over the course of the four days in Dorset, Maydays teachers will lead you along a creative path that will enable you to hone your existing skills while unlocking new ones you didn’t even know you had. Along the way you’ll be able to hand-pick classes that suit your personal needs, as well as working with a small group of fellow students – your ‘class’ – as you follow a carefully crafted curriculum, designed by master improvisers to make you one of them! You’ll study musical improv and long form structures. You’ll delve into scene work and onstage authenticity. You’ll set aside your familiar improv toolkit and spend some time getting cosy with the scary and unfamiliar. You’ll benefit from small classes and tons of individual attention as your teachers help you fine-tune your improv skills. You’ll get a chance to perform in a showcase at the end of the week, putting all those new muscles to work. You’ll meet amazing new people – people who are just as creative and curious as you are. You’ll laugh a lot (the Maydays firmly believe that if you’re laughing, you’re learning). You’ll surprise yourself with your own genius. And how often does that happen? The Improv Intensive offers you the chance to play, grow and take risks, all in a summer-camp atmosphere of support and camaraderie. And everything’s included – classes, accommodation and some of the most delicious food you’ve ever tasted. So come away with us this spring. It’s sure to be an unforgettable – maybe even life-changing – experience. ‘Imagine a school where you woke up every morning and had breakfast with fascinating people, most of whom are incredibly funny creative geniuses. Imagine a school where you looked at the day’s timetable and were disappointed that you could not attend EVERY lesson as they were all just too brilliant. Imagine a school where you hoped that a chance fault in the space-time continuum would mean that the lessons would never end. Imagine a school that you didn’t want to leave at the end of the day! Thanks Maydays – I’ve now mentally replaced the memory of my own dull, grey schooling with the rainbow-technicolour memories of last week.’ Steve Chapman When: 21st March – 25th March 2018 Prices: £555 – Book before 21st February 2018 for a £50 early Bird Discount

Category: Classes[7:00pm] The Nursery/Maydays Improv Drop In Class
Description:
What is it? An afternoon of improvisation fun! Working on the skills at the heart of improvisation, such as listening, making offers and committing to your choices, each week you will go a little further into improvisation, meeting new people and working with different teachers. Every class is stand alone, so you can come along to one, or be there every week! Who is it for? The drop-in is a wide ability class, so everyone is welcome! It is ideal for people trying improvisation for the first time, or more experienced players who want to work on core skills. The atmosphere is accessible, fun and non-judgemental and you will find yourself doing things you never thought you could. What will I get out of it? Each week you will become more confident and relaxed onstage, taking more risks and feeling more creative and liberated. You will learn the attitudes and ideas that make improvisation work. You will also find these things translating into your everyday life. You will be more confident with people, more creative in your work and better able to respond to stress. What have previous students said? A great place to spend a fun Saturday afternoon with a great bunch of people and learn improv from some of the best teachers in the country. A very relaxed and non-judgemental atmosphere which allowed everyone to learn from each other. Lots of fun! You can secure your place by clicking here to book in advance online, or drop in on the day*. Class is capped at 14, and we cannot guarantee a place if you do not book in advance.
