ImproVolutions is a project of
AVAdance coLAB, a multi-generational movement theater improvisation ensemble informed by AVA's movement quality paradigm of Authentic Vibrant Awareness. Led by Artistic Director Michelle Ava, ImproVolutions is committed to developing the art of Improv through technique, experience, and performance, and to educating others to the benefits, fun, and joy derived from Improvisational exploratory interactions. ImproVolutions is inspired by the acclaimed Free Association Improv company popular in the 70's -80', of which Michelle was a founding member. Free Association, along with her long-term collaboration with artist performer Jack Guidone, paved the way for Michelle's exploration into the world of experimental movement theater upon which ImproVolutions is based. The performers come from a wide diversity of performing, expressive and spiritual arts backgrounds and create a unique synergy resulting in surprising, original and exciting co-creations performed in the street and on stage. The core company is often complemented with "pick up" larger casts, comprised of people of various levels of experience, producing surprising, original, and exciting results.
At its heart, improvisation is a "team sport" open to all who believe in the positive power of creating movement art in the moment, in the "now" and of having something wonderful emerge from the will of the collective spirit and personal expression.
ImproVolutions provides classes workshops and performs in senior community centers and school. Projects have included include the DC inaugural 2006 Capital Fringe Fest, Dance is the Answer, VisArts Center, and the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
Come and join ImproVolutions for an Improv Jam every Saturday 2 p.m @ City Fitness Gym 3525 Connecticut Ave NW in the Cleveland Park area of WDC.
We are currently seeking experienced improvisational dancers, musicians and other performance artists for participation in our core company.

"Is dance a reflection of life?
Or is life a reflection of a universal dance?
The line became merged performing in Michelle Ava's environmental dance in front of the Calvary Church in a busy section of downtown DC.
Dance became an endless mirror of reflections".
