Programme Synopsis Improvisation is not just for jazz, rap battles, theatre and comedy. Principles of improvisation can be applied to one’s attitude towards learning and everyday situations. It can help one to cope with uncomfortable situations, creatively offer ideas, gain confidence to explore and approach learning with a fun and positive attitude. In this programme, some students will be invited on stage to participate in improvisational games like Translator and Alphabet Scenes. These lucky students will get the chance to jam with professional improvisers and have a go at applying these principles in practice. They will get to learn how they can utilise these principles in their capacity as students. For example, they can apply the principles of improvisation to practise using the English Language and explore grammar rules.
