Previous stage combat or stunt experience is required – if you have questions about your level of ability or the expectation of training please contact us. The workshop is open to adults, and is geared towards those who have a sufficient foundation in technique to and are interested in the journey towards becoming a choreographer. We are looking to provide a first, a next, or a valuable step to those who want to develop as artists, improve their craft, and work in the professional field as fight directors. This workshop is especially held to help those who are at an early stage as choreographers to offer an introduction to the profession and to provide a basic skill set to develop your craft. We will move quickly, train thoroughly, challenge you creatively, and build your ability.
