Encompassing a variety of historical styles and aesthetics ranging from Egyptian tahtib to classic English robin hood to Shaolin spear, we'll dive into the diverse array of ways to connect the performer to one of the simplest props in existence. Beyond attacks and defenses, students will learn how to ground themselves for stability and power, as well as deepen their understanding of leverage, angles, and biomechanics. This foundations course is designed to give students all the tools they need to confidently and convincingly perform theatrical violence that is both safe and dramatically effective. No prior experience necessary. Whether you're a performer, choreographer, or just someone who wants to get a bit of a workout while swinging sticks around, this class is for you.
Cancellation Policy: Due to limited class sizes and the difficulty with filling a vacancy after the course has begun, class withdrawals that occur after the 2nd week of the course session will be responsible for paying the full course cost.
