Storytelling Through Hand-to-Hand Combat
Beginning, , / Acting, Dance, , , , /
Connect safe best-practice approaches to physical storytelling and experience the tenants of hand-to-hand stage combat. Punch, slap, fall, and more! Isolate each move then combine these into a movement sequence with a focus on strong partnership. These moments on stage move each story forward and this class will do just the same for the students involved!
