General Information About Classes

The Second City Training Centre is the largest school of improvisation and sketch comedy in the world.

We offer classes for beginners looking to try something new to advanced players looking to hone their craft. Our camps and intensives for grades 2-12 run over winter, March, and summer breaks, with Youth and Teen classes throughout the year.

But more than anything, at The Second City Training Centre, you’ll make friends for life, get out of your comfort zone, and laugh more than you ever have!

Want to give us a try before committing? We get that. Try out our adult improv drop-in class on Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm.
