COMEDY CLASSES: Bold Beginnings – Starting Improv Scenes that Sizzle

Wanna step on stage with more confidence, clarity and specificity? Want to make an offer that will start a scene that you are excited to play in? Bold Beginnings is a drill and skill based workshop where you will experience the start of a scene over and over again until you are making first offers that you never want to leave. It’s your scene, why not make it a scene you want to play in?
