Looking to brush up on your stage combat skills? Or anxious to learn a totally new weapons style? Check out some of these upcoming opportunities in Chicago – then next time the Babes have an audition, show us what you learned!
“Weekly stage combat classes over a few months is the way to train, and this summer we are doing two sessions going from Mid-May through the beginning of August! At the Fight Shop, you will have a chance to practice technique appropriate to your level of skill, from brand-new beginner to seasoned fighter. While the level of technique will be fitted to the student, the basic skill that everyone will be working on this summer will be making fights look real, in what we call “Chicago Style”. The goal will be to eliminate the artificial habits that make so many staged fights look fake.”
Where: Strawdog, 3829 North Broadway, upstairs in their 3rd floor rehearsal space!
When: Session 1: Wednesday nights May 20 – June 17 (5 weeks) , 7-9PM
Session 2: Sunday nights June 28 to August 2 (6 weeks), 7-9 PM
