SUMMER CAMP

Stage Combat Camp: Grades 7 - 12

Session 29

This is a fun and creative camp that teaches specific skills for stage combat – a specialized art form for the language of fighting on stage. It is a device developed by performers to keep themselves, and others safe while performing stunning fight choreography to wow an audience. 

Whether you’re new to stage combat or have taken several combat classes or camps with us, you will be challenged to learn new skills and techniques!

Students will be trained in a variety of combat techniques, then incorporate them into acting scenes which will be performed ON STAGE for family and friends to enjoy!
