ICC Training Center structure
At ICC we are all about creating a friendly, supportive environment where we all can have fun and be playful while learning amazing skills. Impro, Improv or improvisation whatever you call it differs from stand-up because most of what you do in an improv class is done as a group – not an individual – you collaboratively create sketches, scenes and stories in the moment.
Improv is based upon people being present, playful and spontaneous in the moment. It is the ultimate team game with actors working together, listening to each other, and building on each other’s ideas to create stories and scenes in the moment. Individual improvisers don’t have to be individually clever, fast or funny. It is more about collaboratively working and playing together to build a greater whole.
Are you completely new to improv? Absolutely no problem. You don’t need ANY stage experience like acting, improv or stand-up comedy. You don’t have to be particularly clever, quick-thinking or naturally funny either.
People from all professions and backgrounds take our improv courses because it’s a great place to relax after work and do all the fun bits without the commitment of regular rehearsals or learning lines.
Our improv classes are suitable for everyone from absolute beginners to experienced actors and improvisers. Improv is for all ages and all backgrounds, everyone is welcome.
Our students have different reasons for doing Improv: Some just want to have a lot of fun; some really appreciate the way our improv classes make you more present in the NOW; some want to perform; some really enjoy the connection you feel with other people; some want to be better at public speaking; some want to rediscover the notion of ‘play’; or further develop their creativity. And if you really want to perform, we provide you with the tools and knowledge to take your skills to the next level.
We teach improv through fun, engaging group games and exercises and you get to do scenes as well. Our courses are conducted mostly through standing exercises which you will be doing with the group or part of the group.
Whatever your reason an ICC improv course will benefit you.
We also have the friendliest community in Copenhagen, spanning more that 35 different nationalities, most of whom you’ll meet at our weekly community show nights.
