About Expatimprov

Welcome to Expatimprov, the perfect destination for expats and theatre enthusiasts living in Germany who have a passion for improvisation and acting!

The workshops and courses are taught in English and take place mainly in Cologne and Düsseldorf.

As well as fun, laughter and spontaneity, our courses have many benefits, including building confidence, reducing stress and making meaningful connections. It's an invaluable experience for anyone interested in personal growth and the chance to make new friends.

If you live in the Düsseldorf/Cologne area, join Albert, an experienced Dutch drama teacher, for our weekly improvisation classes and/or take part in our masterclasses with international guest teachers.

Our courses cover everything from warm-ups, improv games and performances to constructive feedback, so don't worry if you have no previous acting experience.

But wait, there's more! We also organise open improv stages in Cologne and Düsseldorf. These jams offer everyone the opportunity to showcase their skills, creativity and spontaneity in front of a live audience!

We look forward to seeing you at the workshops or open stages!

Discover Our Core Values: Playful, Optimistic, Safe, Community-driven, Respectful.
