Learn to play, have fun and improvise with a bit of real life enquiry too.
Sessions coming up with space to explore how we relate to the theme in real life e.g.
- Making choices when there are no right (or wrong) answers
- Stepping into uncertainty
- Trusting your instincts
- Being seen
- Who we “allow” and “don’t allow” ourselves to be
Beginners, perfectionists and people scared of trying are particularly welcome!
Some things you can count on
- Everything is optional – you never have to do anything
- Everything is confidential – it’s not recorded and our fun is just between ourselves
- We acknowledge nerves – Managing how you feel is part of the practice. I was terrified of improvising so we always practice shaking out nerves.

Introduction to Improvisation – Letting Go of “Right”
Letting Your Body Take the Lead
“I absolutely loved your introductory class! Improv is definitely outside my comfort zone, but you created such a welcoming environment, and you very skillfully calmed everyone’s nerves. I had a lot of fun, and it was wonderful to uncover a playful aspect of myself that had been buried for a long time.”
“I had always been terrified of improv. When I finally took the plunge in Andrew’s highly safe and encouraging workshop, it was a joy to meet my playful side. I amazed myself at what I did and how much I enjoyed it.”
“I love how you are so open and honest about yourself. The sessions are so helpful on all sorts of levels, as well as really fun. Would love to do more!”
“It was a very safe and playful environment that you created during the workshop. I really appreciated the care you took with all participants.”
“I was nervous but Andrew skilfully led the session which was really fun and flew by. It left me wanting more and I’ll be back as soon as I can!”
“I loved today so much. The timing was perfect for a zoom session although I actually really wanted it to go on longer in many ways! To have two hours of freedom from mind talk and a sense of play was heaven! You facilitated it like a true craftsman.”
“Thank you for providing such a warm and welcoming spot to explore.”
“I enjoyed it a lot and it opened a window to the world of improv. There are opportunities for us to get out of our comfort zone yet it remains fun and safe. I left the session energized, proud of my journey through my fears and slowly accepting and taming my troll(s).”
“I wanted to give it a go as it seemed fun and I was not disappointed! Andrew is a wonderful host with a great sense of humour. Everyone feels welcome. Looking forward to play and connect again :)”
“It was really fun – very supportive and encouraging 🙂”
“I joined Andy’s Play / Connect online session without any experience of improv or even knowing what to expect. I just knew that I needed a healthy dose of playfulness, laughter and connection. Andy and his session did not disappoint. He was able to bring strangers together in an online format with ease and grace. We all had the luxury of being with each other in such a fun way and forget for a short time the current perils. I highly recommend him and his fun-loving work. “
