Improv Class Dee Why
This 4 – week Improv Class Dee Why is designed to give students more flexibility, range , confidence and technique to enable students to think clearly and creatively without the blocks.
TV Improv shows like “Who’s Line is It Anyway” have amazed, enthralled and thoroughly entertained audiences with actor’s ability to easily make up and perform on the spot with no rehearsal and no script. Its time to learn the secrets and practice the techniques allow this to happen.
Point Break Drama’s Impro Gym, promises to be a huge amount of fun, and challenging. Best of all there is no stress or pressure to learn dialogue … You just need to attend class with an open mind for training!
Life is improvisation, all those improv classes were like church to me. The training had seeped into me and changed who I am. Tina Fey

Improv Gym at Point Break Drama is quite easily one of the most challenging and ridiculously fun classes you can take. All our time as adults spent controlling impulses, outcomes and behaviour gets chucked out the window in favour of acting completely on instinct, as well as learning to be genuinely present & playing as a team with a bunch of complete strangers. The results of the games can be fascinating and absolutely riotous. It cracks your head open to a whole new way of thinking and has added a new edge & courage to all the work I do.
