This class focuses on two-person improv scenes and how to get to the juicy details and playful funny parts of the scene while heightening the truth and the funny with confidence and delight. We will use drills and exercises to help you get more connected, uninhibited and engaged with your scene partner. You will become a better listener and receiver, truth teller and delicious revealer.
