The primary focus in this class will be on the connection with our partner. We’ll discuss and practice the variety of tools available to us when we inevitably find ourselves at the “start” of the scene. We’ll be looking at the plethora of information we have at our disposal that allow us to improvise with strong and supportive choices.

BOB DASSIE has performed and taught improv all over the world, from New York to Los Angeles, from Singapore to Scotland. Over the years he has been involved with several long-form groups including the improvised musical Baby Wants Candy, The Armando Show and alongside Stephnie Weir in the 2-person WeirDass. Until recently, he performed with Dasariski and Quartet at the IOWest in Los Angeles and has appeared in the fully-improvised play, Stolen House, which premiered in Chicago and had a limited run in New York. Bob has appeared on various screen sizes in shows such as HBO's Funny or Die Presents: The Carpet Brothers, NBC's Community, Comedy Central’s Review, FX’s The Comedians, IFC’s The Spoils of Babylon and in “Casa de mi Padre”. He has also written for Adult Swim’s only satanic dog show Mr. Pickles, the current reboot of the Bugs Bunny cartoon, Wabbit, and again with his lovely wife, for the web series, WeirDass: Eleven Year Itch.
