7:00pm 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.

Category: Classes[7:10pm] The Maydays Presence for Improvisers
Description:
An 8-week Advanced Level 4 Maydays course Whether you’re hosting a show, playing a jolly octopus or a tense kitchen sink drama, captivating performances have one thing in common: the presence of those on stage. Improve your acting skills and relax into your authenticity on this course for experienced improvisers. What can I expect? - Improvising scenes in character - Presenting as yourself - Group games, solo introspection, pair work - Movement and physical self-awareness - Playing with the spectrum of emotions - Laughter We’ll look at improving your characters and commitment so your scenes are more awesome. And how you can feel comfortable being yourself onstage, connect with the audience and enjoy it more. When we’re less self-analytical and more inflow we have more impact and everything becomes easier. So we’ll get out of our heads, into our bodies and find presence in whatever role we’re playing. Who’s it for? - Adults 18-100 - People who’ve completed 2 Maydays courses (or equivalent improv experience) - Those who would like to improve their personal presence - Improvisers wanting to go deeper into character and create more electric scenes - Those who are ‘stuck in their heads’ and wanna release their awesomeness - Those with a willingness to recognise and address personal habits, and support others in doing so This 8-week course culminates in a showcase for family and friends on Wednesday 28 November, 8pm-10pm at the Maydays Studio Brighton. Book before 5th September for a 10% Early Bird Discount! 'Want to learn or brush up your improv? Go to their drop-ins, workshops or their improv retreats.
