Making Moves: Improv Jam

Come celebrate with Making Moves! On December 8th, Making Moves celebrates the end of a successful year of programming with an evening of improvised music and dance.


The Improv Jam will feature live music from Seth Andrew Davis & Evan Verploegh and live lighting design from Ian VanDusen. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and to bring water. This experience is appropriate for dancers and movers of all abilities and backgrounds and is open to all. The Improv Jam takes place in Charlotte Street Foundation’s Stern Theater (3333 Wyoming), begins at 6:30pm, and will last for approximately one hour.




Making Moves is a monthly dance performance series located in Kansas City, MO, curated and produced by Kyle Mullins. Making Moves is dedicated to the creation and development of new works by local and regional dance makers and to expose Kansas City audiences to a wider array of contemporary dance making.

Making Moves provides area choreographers, dancers, and audiences the opportunity to share in the process of new and experimental work in both traditional and non-traditional performance venues. Experimentation, risk-taking, collaboration, and multi-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.

Supported by Charlotte Street Foundation, fiscal sponsorship by Fractured Atlas. Click here to donate.

Join us in celebrating writers’ work for the last Midwest Poetics Showcase with One Mic Stand KC!

Midwest Poetics is an opportunity for artists to make space, celebrate and connect with the many voices that make the music and performance scenes that thrive in the Midwest. We want to give the mic to Black, and Indigenous vocalists, poets, writers, musicians and performers of color to celebrate their craft.

KC Artist Assembly

KC Artist Assembly is a gathering of folks who self-identify as artists and artist organizers in the Kansas City area. The Assembly is a space to come together and describe Kansas City's arts community by identifying resources that exist, and resources that do not exist. These efforts will be documented and published by Charlotte Street as a tool for communities to shape Kansas City's arts ecosystem moving forward, as well as directly inform the programs, resources, and tools provided through Charlotte Street in the coming years.

Free lunch will be provided to all participants. Please RSVP to reserve your complimentary meal!
