Finland's Improv Training Center

What is Improv?

Improv, or improvisation, or specifically “improvised comedy”, is a form of theatre where everything is made up. The characters, plot, dialogue and story are created spontaneously, often based on suggestions and input from an audience.

Who Does Improv?

Improvisers are more than actors. They’re also philosophers, students and teachers. So naturally, improvisers come from all types of backgrounds: Engineers. Musicians. Designers. Students. Artists. Athletes. Writers. And much, much more!

Why Do Improv?

Here are just a few reasons:
Laugh More. Make Mistakes. Play More. Meet People. Learn Something New. Challenge Yourself. Support Your Team. Boost Your Confidence. Perform Better. Share Stories. Create Together. Have Fun.

Yes, AND

Improv is “yes, AND!” It is taking your teammate’s suggestion, accepting it, and building on top of it, offering something in return. For over two years, the improvAcademy has been injecting Chicago Style Improvisation into the Finnish improv scene!
