High School Stage Combat Workshops

Introduction to Stage Combat

These workshops are designed for any grade of High School Drama class.

Unarmed – This workshop demonstrates the safety and basics of what Staged Violence really is. From Chokes and slaps to punches and kicks, various moves will be demonstrated and then the students will get to try them out. Spread over two class period (2 days), this allows for demonstration and teaching on Day 1, followed by review, rehearsal and presentation of a short sequence of choreography on Day 2.

The Sword – In this workshop the students will be taught safety, footwork, parries and attacks. Following the same format for Unarmed the students will be taught the basics on day 1 and then given a short piece of choreography on day 2 to rehearse and present.

Swords will be provided.

Students enrolled in the Specialist High Skills Major program with an interest in stage combat are welcome to attend these workshops for credit. Separate workshops can be arranged if the numbers of SHSM students are more than can be accommodated in two regular class periods.
