Explore the world of swordplay that you see in both live productions and in the film industry. Learn the basics behind moves and how the industry keeps actors and stunt performers safe. Throughout the course students will get up and active and participate in the movement to demonstrate their understanding of the topic. We will also be analyzing popular sword fight scenes from movies and TV chosen by the students; allowing them to connect what we go over each day to the selected scene and start to break down moves they recognize.
