Class Description

Stage Combat is divided into modules focusing on various tools of the trade and work towards the title of “Actor Combatant”.

This 8-week course covers the first two modules.
Module 1 introduces actors to the fundamentals of theatrical hand-to-hand combat and basic weaponry, along with a general understanding of safety, rhythm, stance, and movement.

Common vocabulary and understanding of approach sets the foundation needed to progress to more advanced weaponry in Modules 2 and further study.
