This course is designed to give adult actors a chance to experience stage combat and fight choreography. In this course, students will learn generally used stage combat moves, both offensive and defensive; including punches, kicks, chokes, falls, blocks, rolls, etc. Students will be taught to be technical fighters with emphasis on actor safety. The class is fast moving and all students will incorporate the choreography they learn into a scene by the end of the course. The direct and hands on experience of this class is a great resume builder.
