The Laughing Academy 

The Laughing Academy

Improv training is life skills training. This program is not only for kids who want to be actors; theatrical training for children has been proven to: 

    •  Build self-confidence.
    • Increase self awareness and a greater sense of how one is perceived.
    • Develop critical listening skills.
    • Enhance verbal communication skills.
    • Produce greater empathy for others as a result of character work.
    • Increase the capacity for peaceful conflict resolution as students learn to negotiate within an improv scene.
    • Foster confidence in a student's own ability to create and make an impact.
    • Teach teamwork as students work as an ensemble.

 Each term also offers FREE evening student Improv Jams and a FREE Professional Improv Show!


The Henking/Hoffman PTA is a local unit of the Illinois PTA and part of the National PTA.
