Stage & Screen Fighting: Basic or Advanced
This seminar will be the perfect introduction for Fighting for Film or Stage as well as an opportunity for past students to work on Advanced Choreography for a live performance and for film.

Basic: This introduction will cover the fundamental unarmed techniques you will most commonly be called on to perform including punches, slaps, hair pulls, chokes, falls and kicks.

Advanced: If you have trained with me in the past then enroll for the Advanced Choreo session instead. You will be given an advanced sequence of choreography to work up to speed. In the first half you will be expected to perform it at speed for stage and in the second half you will work the common camera angles with minimal rehearsal time to reset for each angle. Please be ready for a high paced experience with high expectations!

This session sold out last time so register asap.

WHERE: Battery Dance Company, 380 Broadway (2 blocks south of Canal), NYC unless otherwise noted.

TIME: 12pm-4pm.
