The academy stim­u­lates the imag­i­na­tion and self-dis­cov­ery through dra­matic arts. Kathryn Kim­mins of Laugh Your­self Healthy ex­plained the ben­e­fits of laugh­ter and led the class through ex­er­cises in breath­ing and laugh­ing for health, and to ac­ti­vate the log­i­cal left and cre­ative right hemi­spheres of the brain.
