OUR MISSION STATEMENT

HOLLY MANDEL: IMPROVOLUTION founder, GROUNDLING alumna

HOLLY MANDEL: IMPROVOLUTION founder, GROUNDLING alumna

Improv for Everyone. That is our motto and our philosophy.

Founded by Los Angeles GROUNDLING alumna Holly Mandel in 2002, IMPROVOLUTION is an improv school, a group of performers, and dare we say philosophy of how to live, create, and collaborate on and off stage. If you want to learn it, we can teach you. It’s not about being funny or clever or aggressive, or needing to be a good actor or performer. It's not reducible to one format, game, or rule. It’s about investing in and getting behind the part of yourself that is fearless, creative, open, spontaneous, and likes the idea of creating with others. Improvisation has been and always will be a “team sport”. And IMPROVOLUTION carries on the GROUNDLINGS tradition of a character-based emphasis to improv.

Basically improv is just kinda awesome. It helps people work together in amazing ways. It helps people think faster on their feet and trust their ideas. It helps people see that they don’t have to have everything figured out to participate fully, have fun, and create. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We want everyone who is interested to experience the freedom, joy, and individual and collective creativity that improv unlocks.
