The TCS In The Moment Improv Program

Ever want to give improv a try?

You’re at the right place! We’ve been teaching improv in English in Tokyo since 1994 for all levels, from beginners to experienced performers.

What should you expect?

We’ll ease you into improv in a fun and natural way. Beginners and Intermediate Improvisors are shown the basics of agreement, story-telling, character work, how funny the truth can be and how to create and have fun like a kid again. You’ll do exercises in pairs and small groups in the first half and then volunteers get up and practice scenes and games in front of the class with side coaching from the instructor. And when you’re ready, we have relaxed student showcases at Our Space, our black box studio! Find out more and sign up in our Meetups:

What’ll improv do for me?

Improv will release your innate creativity, make you a better listener and conversational partner, identify your subconscious fears and negativity, and grant you the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound! (All but one of those are true.) You’ll also chill with classmates at a nearby restaurant afterwards, and make friends from all over the world.

Hey, I’m an advanced improvisor or really experienced actor!

If you have the experience, our Advanced Scenic Improv Workshops take deep dives into long-form improv and improvised genre plays. We use formats that enable actors to utilize both their wit and their acting skills, and they can then participate in student showcases at Our Space, our black box studio.
