What we're about

"Yes And..!" is a phrase we too often leave behind in childhood. Improvisation, also known as Theater Sports, helps us win back that free spirited, open attitude. It helps us shake-off the inhibitions that pile up as life happens, as we filter ourselves or worry about failing or seeming silly, all the while crushing our creativity. We need to reclaim being silly!

Some guiding principles of Improv include:
Accepting: The power of “Yes And!”
Collaborating: Making your partner look good as the priority (which circles around to you looking good;)
Listening: Being in the moment
Growing: by stepping a bit out of your comfort zone, all in the name of fun

Whether you imagine yourself on stage or just want to have fun with like-minded people, the exercises are great for overall attitude. I've been taking classes for 5+ years, but often have to go to Amsterdam. I'm determined there must be more "Players" in The Hague.

Improv for Beginners & Lovers ~ Every Second Saturday

Location visible to members

Hi Players! These Beginners & Lover's workshops are suitable for beginners and those who know that practice, practice, practice, makes fun! The workshops are planned for every 2nd Saturday of the month. With other events, I think once per month is enough, so far, but we'll see. For instance, every fourth Friday the "7MRP Creative Minds" also host an Improv-like workshop. Cost: €5 to help cover the cost of this MeetUp platform, coffee, tea, cookies... Shoes off: These meetings are “shoes off” for comfort and care of the wooden floor. No Shows and Minimum participants: We had 5 No Shows last session, and yes, things happen on occasion, but please do not RSVP unless you're committed to coming. I reserve the right to cancel a workshop if we have less than 6 RSVP's. This is with You, the Participants in mind, because the dynamic is best with a minimum of 6 Players. If we have too few, you may want to spend your time elsewhere. Click top left, the "About Us" to read more about Improv. cheers, Jen
