STAGE COMBAT: DUELING ARTS INTERNATIONAL

Some of the greatest climactic moments in theater are centered on violence.  In order to safely perform these moments, actors must train under a fight director.  These series of classes focus on teaching techniques for creating the illusion of violence in a theatrical setting.  They emphasize physical awareness, dynamic acting choices, fitness, and partnering.  There will be the opportunity to test for Level 1 Certification for the class weapon through Dueling Arts International.

Rapier and Dagger – In the early 16th century as the popularity of dueling increased and the efficiency of large heavy armors decreased, an off handed weapon began to be employed for defense; the dagger being the most popular for its ease of carry and offensive capabilities.  Combatants will be challenged to integrate both sides of their bodies in dynamic choreography where they will be able to attack and defend at the same time. Weapons will be provided.
