Intro to Duos

This class is an exploration of the two person scene and a primer for the Two Play program. Over the course of 6 weeks students will learn what it takes to be in an improv duo while getting training in two person scenes, culminating in a free public showcase. You do not need to have a duo partner to join this class.

This class is great for anyone searching for a duo partner, wanting to try out a duo partner, or wanting to explore the two person scene in more depth. If a duo comes in together, then they will be paired with one another for the entire 6 weeks. If individuals come into the class, they will be put on a revolving duo partnership.

Max students: 14
Prerequisite: At least 3 levels at an improv training center or by instructor recommendation.

Why Duo it?

Improv is built upon the two-person scene. Simply put, duo work makes you a better performer because it holds you accountable for your improv.

When performing in larger groups, two-person scenes often get cut short for any number of reasons. Your fellow improvisors want to “save” the scene, may want to play themselves, or may want to “add on” to a scene in order to heighten it. When any of these things happen, the two person scene is lost. If you feel you have been stuck doing the same type of improv, this class provides a different path.

After being in a duo for over 10 years, I can say that nothing else accelerates your growth and increases your stage confidence than being in a duo. The gift of two people playing together without interruption allows the improvisor to go deeper, play the nuance of the scene, and eliminate the fear of silence.
