WS04 - Good Cop/Bad Cop
Some instructors like to build you up, some like to tear you down. Both have their benefits and their reasons to punch them in the face. Despite their techniques they are working toward the same goal: to make you a better improviser and performer. In this new workshop, Kristin Finger will be your Good Cop, giving you supportive coaching and focusing on your strengths. Don Montrey will be your Bad Cop, giving you frank, un-couched, possibly snarky feedback, focusing on the holes of your performance. (But be assured, he is thrilled to work with you.) Prerequisite: CSz level 201 or above or an equivalent training from an established improv training center
When: Saturday, July 23rd
Instructor: Kristin Finger and Don Montrey
Your Instructors: Kristin Finger and Don Montrey
