Class Description: When you're playing online, or in-person, giving and taking focus can be a challenge. Think about that group scene when everyone starts talking at once... what happens then? What about making an edit move that doesn't use words or visual actions? Being able to take focus effectively (and give it when your scene partner needs it) is an important skill. Learn to use your energy and intent to make your moves clear when you want to take focus, and learn how to gracefully give it too. Learn special techniques about how to do this online, too, where it's just as important and can be a unique but worthwhile challenge.
