Stage Combat

Saturdays, April 10th-May 8th, 1:30-2:45pm 

Stage combat is all about reacting. Stage combat is all about breathing. Stage combat is all about the dance you do with your partner. Did you know that the person who “sells” a fight is the victim and is actually the one in control and does all the work? Learn all the secrets that actors use in plays and in Hollywood. Led by Jonathan Gonzalez, a veteran of many plays where he has died, killed, and fought, Students will learn the basics of stage combat that you use in any fight, how to make a fight look realistic, and how to do fights from hand to hand to simple swords. Above all, we will be safe! Stage combat always looks worse than it is and that’s what makes it fun, the imagination and abilities of the actor!

Ballet 101

Saturdays, April 10th-May 8th, 2:50-4:00

This course is an introductory class to ballet and lays the foundational groundwork for all types of dance. Ballet 101 introduces learners to the structure of a traditional ballet class which explores barr work, floor work, technique, and simple dance combinations. Unlike traditional ballet classes this course is adaptive, meeting learners of all levels and abilities where they are at. We believe dance is for everyone! At the end of this session audiences will enjoy a short ballet recital featuring songs from famous ballets such as Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and the Nutcracker.
