Learn Improv in Chicago, Il

Your little comedian might be too young to watch Saturday Night Live, but that doesn't mean she can't start training to be the next big star of the show in, say, 2028. Second City, the improv factory that churned out notable SNL alumni including Tina Fay and Dan Aykroyd, has classes to teach even the littlest of actors (because, really, what's so difference between improv and plain old make believe?). Its "Imaginaction class, for kids ages four to eight, teaches the "building blocks of basic improv" while giving kids experience at learning how to play off and work with others. Kids will conquer shyness, build confidence, and learn a few silly improv games they'll be begging you to play with them at home.
