What's Included

NEW Adult Stage Combat workshop For ages 18 and up (under 18 with permission of instructor) Hamlet, West Side Story, Pirates of Penzance, Romeo and Juliet... A Streetcar Named Desire. To be an actor, sometimes you have to be a fighter too. Learn the basics of stage combat in this three week workshop, including targeting, footwork, judging distance, "knapping" your hits, and selling your choreography. Throw a punch, swing a sword, and learn to fall. Most importantly, learn to do it all safely. Participants will learn unarmed techniques and basic broadsword. The workshop will end with a choreographed fight for each participant. Taught by Risa Petrone, whose stage combat credits include: Camelot, Equivocation (fight director), The New York Renaissance Faire (fight performer), and The Greatest Pirate Story (N)ever Told (fight captain and performer, Off-Broadway).
