My first time with "You" at Second City Toronto!

  • The Second City Toronto 99 Blue Jays Way Toronto, ON, M5V 9G9 Canada (map)

(This class is sold out, but our Sunday workshop, "The Scene at the End of the Game," still has a couple of spots available. Head back to "Workshops" for info!)

Set aside all unnecessary elements of improv training and replace them with a life-changing awareness of “you being on stage with you.” It's "You," an amazing opportunity to discover you in this all-day masterclass...with a performance!

The most important person on stage is YOU. YOU get to notice what happens, YOU get to be aware of what’s inspiring you, YOU get to follow what energizes you, and YOU get to celebrate the surprises that YOU create.

Focus on personal awareness and presentness, of the excitement of knowing what to do the moment the moment arrives! YOU are in charge, and this workshop will be a study of–and a practice of–you connecting to you. YOU are the boss of YOU.

Then you get to work it out in performance! A “guided performance,” side-coached by Dave.

The “YOU” “takeaways” will include:
–Owning calm self-awareness at the beginning of your scenes immediately leading you to strong points-of-view.
–Letting go, moving on. The beat feels like it’s over…now what? You will always know what’s the “now” about your scene.

This will all lead up to you being a strong, confident, courageous actor, producing scenes that will most surprise…you.
