The television show Life's Moments' segment on Linda's Total Improv Kids with her kids preforming at the World Famous Hollywood Improv!
“Linda has introduced her young thespians to a wide variety of exciting opportunities – meeting professional performers, organizing out-of-town performances, staging numerous gigs throughout Southern California and doing so with a loving, patient, enthusiastic, supportive and amazingly indefatigable spirit…We are fortunate that our son has learned so much about his passion and he too is very appreciative of Linda’s guidance, wisdom and support.”
“Since knowing Linda, I have witnessed a tireless dedication to her improvisation work with children. I greatly admire and support the work she is doing…It is my belief that all children should have the opportunity to be involved in the performing arts. Most of us who are in this profession are here because someone inspired us in our youth.”
“Linda has helped my daughter become a much more rounded person and has given her more confidence to perform in front of audiences to her fullest ability. She has become a great performer with the help of Linda Fulton and Total Improv Kids.”
My teenage son has been rehearsing and performing with Total Improv Kids for several months. He is a special needs child with mild autism, learning disabilities and accompanying emotional issues. Total Improv Kids has provided a fertile outlet for his hyperactivity and overflowing imagination. Within Total Improv Kids’ gentle structure, he can be himself in a way that is not only appreciated, but applauded by others. His social skills have blossomed because of the friendships and encouragement he has received from others in the group. When I see his sparkling eyes and delighted smile, his new focus and purpose, I can hardly believe he is the kid he used to be.”
Seeing the changes in my daughter throughout her years in Total Improv Kids with Linda made me a believer in the power of improv. Initially, my daughter signed up for classes to hone her acting skills, but as I observed, I realized that the benefits went way beyond acting skills, as many priceless life skills were developed as well. I noticed improvements in areas such as social confidence, thinking on one’s feet, commanding an audience, and being present in the moment during interactions. As a neuropsychologist, I appreciate improv as an effective tool for enhancing cognitive/emotional abilities and realizing brain potential. I wish to commend Linda on all she has done (and continues to do) for the field of improv. Her passion for helping others through improv is apparent in her thoughtful teaching approach. I marvel at how she has profoundly touched the lives of others as she builds her legacy. Total Improv Kids certainly made a huge impact on my daughter. In turn, the life skills my daughter learned through improv have served as a catalyst for her to help others. Amazing work, Linda!"
“Linda Fulton and Total Improv Kids have been working with our Adaptive Recreation program for the past year. We are excited about the progress that we are seeing in the participants with disabilities who are members of our ongoing recreation program. The participants are enthusiastic and enjoy the variety of games offered though Linda Fulton and her staff. Participants who were normally very shy and withdrawn are joining the group activities for the first time…”
Linda Kellogg Fulton is an internationally renowned teacher in the art of improvisation. With over fifty years of experience, Linda’s primary focus is on working both with kids and with educators, coaches, and other professionals who work with children using the scientifically backed new method of learning she created called Developmental Improvisation. The purpose of Developmental Improvisation is to focus on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) from the inside out while building life skills, unlocking hidden talents, encouraging personal growth, and preparing students for life challenges, rather than performing improvisation for entertainment. Linda is the founder of both the award-winning Total Improv Kids and more recently Improvability LLC, through which she speaks around the country and the world on Developmental Improvisation, sharing her philosophy and technique.
