What Our Partners Say
I am very pleased to recommend Kaivalya Plays with whom I started working last year. I have been doing community-engaged programs in my Hindi classes where I invite guest speakers and experts of culture and art to enhance students’ understanding of culture and language. TheThe sessions by Kaivalya Plays focused on promoting creativity and encouraging students to spontaneously express themselves while not feeling any pressure. They were not being judged when they made mistakes. The interactive exercises and fun activities were at the center of these sessions. These activities allowed my students to build confidence and express their ideas. The best part was team spirit when they created a story in a group and proudly shared it with the entire class.

My teaching experiences with Kaivalya Plays have encouraged me to investigate the impact of improv on learners more systematically. With support from Vanderbilt’s Educational Advancement Fund grant, Kaivalya Plays and I are working together to investigate the impact of improv on language learning, intellectual risk taking, and overall learner well-being in my elementary and advanced courses. One cannot find a team more dedicated, knowledgeable, and professional than Kaivalya Plays to bring those goals to life.

Kaivalya Plays has seamlessly incorporated the theatre with the field of mental health. The program fits beautifully in the school mental health model recommended by the World Health Organization. A fun, contemporary and experiential way of carrying out the wellness and preventive work.
