What makes your approach unique? How can you focus your improv rehearsals with a coach (or another goal-oriented duo) to explore duo improv? Each duo will get direct feedback in this class; individuals can expect to get notes on scenework and form while actively watching and processing notes on all performances.

This class will run twice (9/13, 9/20) for 2 1/2 hours.
