What we're about

Some of us wanted to learn more about Improvisation. There are few choices in the Kansas City area to be an Improv participant and learner!

Thus, this group was started, and is FREE to all participants. Neither Improv experience nor acting experience is required. The particular group of attendees at each session will vary. Some will have some Improv experience and others will be trying it for the first time.

This all started because of the book by Alan Alda (of “MASH” fame) titled "If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?". The book often mentions Improv as one of the best ways to really learn how to communicate with others. The book gives several Improv-type exercises to try. Also, the book makes several references to Viola Spolin's book "Improvisation for the Theater"

In each session of this group we will learn by doing and from each other. We go through a series of Improv games, or exercises, mentioned in the books and gotten from the Internet.

Join us. Bring your knowledge and ideas to the group. Grow and learn with us. And, have fun doing it!
