Second Sunday Seminars Series

This series is designed to provide intensive four-hour training sessions for Stage & Screen Combat. The subject matter will vary from month to month. Sometimes we will train in the use of specific weapons. Other times the sessions will cover acting-based topics as they specifically relate to violence on stage or screen.

A minimum number of participants is required to make certain the seminar happens so make sure to sign up early.  You must register by the end of the preceding month for the discounted price.

WHERE: will vary but typically at:
-Battery Dance Company, 380 Broadway (2 blocks south of Canal), Ripley Grier Studios at 520 8th Ave. NYC
TIME: 4 hour blocks (around 12pm-4pm).
COST: Typically $75 (late registration $100) but special seminars will have varying cost.

Rhythm of the Fight

This seminar will focus on choreographing an unarmed fight, working it up to speed and then playing with the rhythm. Much like a song or dance, a great fight must have a good rhythm to it. Watch how we can swap the hero and the villain without even changing the choreography!

Beginners will start with an introduction to screen/stage combat before moving in to a short bit of choreography to apply their new skills.

Experienced participants will work together on a much more complex fight and possibly more than 2 rhythm changes.
