"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!"

Whether you’re a seasoned actor looking to expand your skill set, or just out for a good workout and a great time, this 8-week stage combat class is for you! From slaps to swordplay, performers of all levels will learn how to tell a story with their whole body. All techniques will be applied to Shakespeare scenes, culminating in a dynamic, battle royale finale performance on March 18. In the hands of an experienced instructor, and with a strong emphasis on safety, this class will teach the specific techniques of hand to hand combat and swordplay, including safe approaches to slaps, pushes, hair pulling, kicks, and chokes, basic swordplay skills like cuts, parries, binds, and disarms as well as the escalation of violence. Techniques learned will be applied to Shakespeare scenes for a finale performance, culminating in storytelling through dramatic violence. For advanced performers and newcomers to Shakespeare, this class is a fun and engaging way to build performance skills, work with other teenagers as part of a team, and connect the ideas and conflicts in Shakespeare's world to our own. Open to students of all experience levels and abilities.

*Scholarships available.

Mondays, 4:00-5:30 pm, Jan. 28 - Mar. 18
