BATS Mission, Vision, & Values
(Our Navigational Star, as of 1.20.21)
Mission (our purpose, our reason for being)
BATS Improv changes lives through improv. We cultivate and innovate the craft of improvisation through engaging, playful, and high-quality performance and training.
Vision (what it looks like if we are doing things right)
The excellent work we do on-stage, in classes, and in trainings — and also behind the scenes — inspires our community to practice the skills of careful attention, joyful collaboration, and rich storytelling everywhere they go.
Our people come from all walks of life and we consciously share our resources to ensure access for all.
At BATS, people feel changed for the better.

- diversity, equity, and inclusion (specifically, working to become anti-racist and anti-oppression)

- collaboration and connection
- joyful play and fun
- professionalism and excellence
