Everybody was acting fighting

Learn stage combat from one of the masters. (Michael J. Johnson)

Want to learn how to (fake) fight? Riot Act Inc. again offering its highly popular Stage Combat Class. It’s taught by professional fight director Michael J. Johnson. The class will include stage combat training.

Stage combat is the theatrical representation of violence performed during the course of a live performance that focuses on safety and repetition. This class will focus on unarmed combat. Just as a ballet dancer must first learn a tondu or plié before they can perform the Nutcracker, an actor too must first learn the basics before they can pick up a sword and play Romeo.

Unarmed stage combat teaches these basics, such as partnering, timing, communication, distance, and safety. The curriculum will consist of safe, yet theatrically viable slaps, punches, kicks, falls, sweeps, throws, rolls, and takedowns.

Tuition is $50 per person.  Class will be Sat. Jan. 13, 2018 from 12pm to 5:30pm at Dancers’ Workshop Studio 1.  Register on Riot Act’s website or call 307-203-9067.
