Where We Started

It All Began

like so many other European companies… in the classrooms and stages of the Chicago Improv Scene in the late 2000’s. We trained our improv skills in the same Chicago theaters that sparked the growth of improvisation worldwide.

We Fell In Love 

with the philosophies and ideals of improv. So we brought them to Europe and built up our own thriving improv communities, independently established Training Companies in Finland and Denmark, and opened an Award-Winning Theater in Copenhagen.

We Spent Our Days

perfecting our craft and making a name for ourselves. We have facilitated thousands of hours of workshops, trained tens of thousands of people across Europe, and helped hundreds of companies connect across the globe.

Where We Are

We Established

IMPROV Communication in Copenhagen as the official Corporate Training arm of the ICC TheaterIn 2019, in a move to connect with the best talent that Europe has to offer, we began collaborating with international partners in Spain, Poland, and Finland.

We Acquired 

our first partner company in 2020 and established our second location in Tampere, Finland. This expanded partnership has allowed us to combine our strengths, expand our reach, and connect with even more people and businesses throughout Europe.

We Operate

internationally, with the majority of our clients based in the Nordics. Our headquarters are located in Copenhagen, with affiliates based in Finland, Poland, and Spain, and a network of Professional Improv Facilitators stationed across the continent.

Where We’re Headed

We Are Bringing

the IMPROV Experience to more people, teams, and organizations. Denmark and Finland are just the beginning. We are excited to strengthen our workforce through additional affiliates in the Nordics by 2022, and expect to increase our presence in mainland Europe by 2024.

We Are Committed

to finding the best people in Europe who can create the best experience for our clients. We are building a diverse team of people from all backgrounds, training new facilitators in our methods, and creating new services to meet our clients’ needs.

We Are Embracing

the unknown. We look forward to the opportunity to initiate new ideas, and we’re eager to be inspired by others.

After all… We’re improvisers.
