Billed as ‘One of the most skilled sword-fighters around’, The Duelling Dame is a trained Fight Director and has choreographed and taught stage combat from private schools to Developmentally disabled adults!
Real techniques, foam swords.
The Dame's swords are foam to keep even the tiniest learner safe. But make no mistake, the techniques are real, and the Dame will have you mastering basic moves and the ability to execute a fight in 20 minutes!
Participants in Renaissance or Medieval fairs, or in schools learn in a visceral way how to appreciate the art of swordfighting! While learning some creative and PG Elizabethan insults too! Longer workshops include mastering a Shakespearian fight for the stage!
The Dame teaches students to kick, punch, and slap without getting hurt. The Dame reveals the secrets to the illusion of stage combat, instructs choreography notation, and provides the confidence to create your own fight.
