The Second City ensemble 2019

February 2019

On Thursday, January 31st, members of The Second City touring company and training center in Chicago descended upon Louisville to deliver a hilarious live performance and interact with the community, leading multiple workshops in team building, character building, and communication skills, based on the tenets of improvisation.    

They began by visiting the new Leadership Louisville offices to lead a workshop with the 18 members of the Leadership Louisville staff and board for their annual staff development day. The group used creative thinking and non-verbal communication in improvisation games to navigate challenges presented by the facilitators and learn useful skills in working as a group.  

That afternoon, writer and teacher Nick Johne and cast member Sarah Dell’Amico visited Dreams With Wings, a partner organization of the Kentucky Performing Arts ArtsReach program, and led a workshop for seven teens with down-syndrome and on the autism spectrum focused on team building, exploring different relationships and social cues.  

That evening, company members Asia Martin and Sarah Dell’Amico worked with 18 veterans and civilians who participate in both Kentucky Performing Arts ArtsThrive Warrior’s Heart Community and ArtsThrive programs at the VA. The workshop aimed to expand the capacity for cooperation, build openness to new ideas through active listening, and raise participants' confidence in solving challenges.  

On Friday morning, Jeff Poole, program head of The Second City kids and teens workshops, and company member Terrence Carey met with 17 Jefferson County Technical College (JCTC) faculty and administrative staff from all campuses in a professional development workshop focused on team building and interactive games to introduce with students in the classroom. This was the second annual improv workshop between The Second City and JCTC administered by Kentucky Performing Arts.
