w/ Dave Buckman
Tuesdays in July

Many experienced upper level performers don’t have opportunities to take workshops or get notes. If you are in a rut and haven’t felt like you have had a ‘good show’ in months or if you would like to take yourself to the next level this workshop may be for you.

This class is specifically designed for experienced improvisers, graduates of Austin’s Improv Training Centers and Improv Instructors to take an honest and supportive look at your own scene work, get some good feedback and receive notes that are fair and honest.
