Class Experience

Working with lead teacher Kim Greene Hiller and small groups of same-age students, your kids will get everything they've come to expect from The Laughing Academy classes. Confidence, communication skills, collaboration and creativity all blossom on our stages.

Working as an ensemble to create their own show, students will learn the power of "yes, and" the improv tenet which encourages us to embrace the creative ideas of other, accepting them as gifts as we add our own ideas to the process. Through improv we learn that those things which are unique and different in each of us don't preclude us from cooperation, they result in the most satisfying collaborations.

Our limited-class sizes ensure that your child gets all the encouragement, individual attention, and inclusivity you've come to expect from The Laughing Academy.

Improv games enhance life skills like active listening, respecting and valuing the contributions of others, and valuing our own instincts and ideas. Your child will grow as an innovative thinker, and feel more capable of finding creative solutions for the challenges they're facing.


We do have ample parking on the east side of our building between Lou Malnati's and Luxilon Furniture. Please bring a light snack as we will take a quick snack break. We can't wait to see you!
