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.

-Battery Dance Company, 380 Broadway (2 blocks south of Canal), Ripley Grier Studios at 520 8th Ave. NYC or 353 W. 48th Studios
TIME: 4 hour blocks (typically in the afternoon, sometimes evening).
COST: Typically $75 (late registration $100) but special seminars will have varying cost.
