Two Person Scenework & Chemistry | Spring 2019 | Wednesdays

This class is all about giving you ample time to do scenework with a specific focus on two-person scenes and will give you the repetition you need to make that scenework come naturally. Students will gain familiarity and chemistry working together in scenes by being paired together for two weeks at a time…that means each student will get to work one-on-one with four different people through the course of the eight-week session. To get the most out of this class and to be able to gain the trust and chemistry of working with your partner, a commitment to attending class is extremely important so take that into account before signing up. Class is being limited to 10 people to ensure as much stage time as possible.
