This class is for beginners and will focus on the basics of theatrical swordfighting, which will then be adapted to film. Basics will be rooted in the same practices that are used in major motion films and Broadway. Students will learn techniques and tricks to ensure that there partners are safe and their performance looks real to the audience. This class is good for anyone who ever secretly wanted to be a pirate, as well, actors looking to boost their resumes to include combat fighting.
