Ages 10-15*

In this introductory workshop, participants will explore basic stage combat techniques and terminology while learning to fight like a jedi knight. Trading traditional stage combat weapons for light sabers, participants will explore movement as a form of storytelling; explore basic acting principles; and learn the importance of teamwork and communication as they work to learn and perform an epic fight scene! Participants will also learn how to build their very own lightsaber.

Stage combat is a great way to improve your acting skills, physical awareness and coordination, and increase self-confidence. It's also fun! 

*Students under the age of 11 must have completed the 4th grade by the time of the workshop.
