This workshop has started or is in the past.

Class Description: In this class you make things BIG, and you will commit to the move. You will commit hard. You'll commit to big characters, and to the big reactions they make. You'll commit to the big swing, to the big energy, to that big game.

You'll practice using the tools and techniques to commit to the scene, and get the freedom to make those swings and commit to the move. Because Julie will get you out of your head, and into the scene.

Show the internet what you learned too: your class will record a show on April 3 that will stream on WGIS social channels.
