Open to all levels of experience; modifications will be available for newcomers Location: Oscars Bar & Kitchen (upstairs room) in Grund. 9 Bisserweg, L-1238 Luxembourg.

Improv is based upon the principle of ‘yes and’ meaning we accept what has been offered to us and build upon it. We make scenes on the spot based on a prompt, and see where the muse takes us. Teamwork, active listening, commitment, accepting mistakes and celebrating failure are all key to Improv and all of these skills can have positive effects outside the workshops in our personal and professional lives. Melissa strives to create a warm, supportive and safe environment where there is no pressure to be clever or funny; where you can just be yourself and most of all have tonnes of fun!
