2:00pm Category: Classes[2:00pm] The Maydays Improv for Business: Mindfulness
Description:
The Maydays business improv course in London is an open group programme, allowing you to book a place as an individual, without needing to form a group in your own company. Every programme is CPD accredited, so the points can count towards your personal development or annual training plan. Improv course outcomes Each session we run will include exercises to develop: – Self-confidence and interpersonal skills – Ability to make strong decisions in real-time – Group collaboration and teamwork – Presentation and communication skills – Agility and free-thinking – Active listening skills and concentration – Positive attitudes to being out of your comfort zone In addition, this particular session will have a focus on: Mindfulness Keeping your cool in stressful environments, meetings or with heavy workloads is key to productivity, creativity and success in business. This session will show you how to remain in the moment, allow you to experience uncertainty and practise staying calm in the face of it. Improvisation lives in the space between the known and the unknown and we soon discover that we are more resourceful than we ever knew. Turn off your inner critic and you will find that you already know everything you need to know. Mindfulness is often practised in a quiet room, alone or with similar reverently quiet people. Life is not reverent and quiet though. Improv allows you to practise mindfulness amidst the noise and uncertainty of life. Mindfulness is being in the moment, not removed from it and improv demands your full attention and connection with those around you, and with yourself. By the end of the session, you’ll feel calmer, energised and surer of yourself. Full details via our courses page on our website

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!

Category: Classes[7:30pm] The Maydays / Nursery Online Improv Drop-In
Description:
The Maydays / Nursery Online Improv Drop-In PLEASE CHECK THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE CORRECT DATE FROM THE DROP DOWN BOX WHEN FOLLOWING THE BOOKING LINK AS THERE ARE NO REFUNDS. In response to the unprecedented situation with the Coronavirus, the Nursery and the Maydays are moving their joint improvisation classes online with immediate effect. We believe improvisation is a very useful way to connect with people and can help us to keep perspective and balance in these challenging and confusing times. We want to continue offering people this, even if the medium is slightly changed. These online drop-in classes are slightly shorter and cheaper than our normal drop-in classes, but still offer the same combination of pair and group work, and are still open to both beginners and more experienced improvisers. Initially, they were running at the normal times of 7 pm Wednesday, 8 pm Thursday and 1 pm Saturday, but this has already proved hugely popular with online sessions already selling out, so we’ve now added lots more! When? Monday to Friday – 7.30 pm-9.30 pm every evening Saturdays & Sundays 1 pm-3 pm & 3.30 pm-5.30 pm Where? ONLINE ZOOM ROOM Who is it for? The drop-in is a wide ability class but is specifically aimed at newer improvisers or more experienced players who want to work on core skills. The atmosphere is accessible, fun and non-judgemental. Who is teaching it? For variety, the teacher will change every week. All teachers are either from The Maydays or The Nursery Theatre and are highly experienced improvisers and teachers. How much is it? £10+ booking fee per class, bookable in advance How do I join an online class? There is simply a link for you to click, which will be included in your booking summary email once you’ve bought your place. *classes are limited to 12 students and no guarantee is made of a place if you do not book. Please note that the Nursery who ticket these events cannot refund tickets after purchase. The minimum age for all Nursery classes is 18. Please also note that classes start on time and if you are more than 30 minutes late without letting us know, you may not be able to join the class, as you will have missed warmups.
