Stage Combat Courses with Art In Arms

Art in Arms LLC and Certified Teacher Mike Lubke are offering multiple long-form weekly stage combat courses to kick off 2019!  Take your performance skills to the next level by studying extensively in the disciplines of unarmed, sword and shield, or smallsword.

These longform courses (over 45 hours of instruction) are designed to give performers all the tools they need to successfully perform stage combat onstage within a particular discipline.  The goal is to give students the skillset necessary to be simultaneously safe and dramatically effective storytellers.  Following a curriculum that adheres to the standards set by the Society of American Fight Directors, students will develop fundamental skills and techniques they can apply to tackle any piece of choreography they encounter in theatrical performance.  No prior stage combat experience is necessary.  Each course culminates in a public showcase with an option to test for performer certification through the SAFD.
