Workshop TO Performance - Duos
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
EARLY BIRD DEADLINE
This class is designed for improv Duos (teams of two) and is open to new teams looking to jumpstart thier sets or veteran teams looking for a shot in the arm. The first four weeks will focus on instruction, the second four weeks focus on performance with weekly sets on the CSz Philadelphia stage for audiences. These shows will be followed by a notes session with the Instructor. This is a great way to work on your form and get some immediate feedback.
From Bob: "We will start with a clear understanding of individual and collective goals and -- using diagnostics to determine where a person and duo is at the beginning of our work together-- we'll modify and craft exercises that help you both intellectualize and experience the types of approaches and behaviors that help bring it home for you. Feel free to reach out if you have questions." Pre-Requisite: Improv 301 from CSz Philadelphia or another training center.
