Swordastic Saturday August 26th
Scimitar Sale! Register for at least one workshop on Saturday and purchase a scimitar for only $35! Jump right in, learn the basic moves and some intermediate and advanced moves too!
Sword + Intro to Sword Dancing + Intermediate/Advanced Sword = $85 (3 hours plus your very own scimitar!)
9:30-10:30am Intro to Sword Dancing: Brandish and Balance = $20 (1 hour)
The sword has a power of its own so get ready to fall under its spell. Elizabeth will guide you as you learn to respect and control the sword while creating a new kind of dance. We will begin with sword handling, introduce basic balancing techniques, and then put it all together while dancing! Bring a sword and headscarf or headband. This class is perfect for the BEGINNING sword student, or as a warm up to the intermediate/advanced workshop.
10:45-12:45pm Intermediate & Advanced Sword Dancing: Techniques & Combos = $40 2 hours
This workshop is designed for sword dancers with intermediate and advanced skill sets. Now that you know how to handle, balance and flourish you sword, you will learn how to gracefully and dynamically make your sword a partner in your dance.
To facilitate this transition, you will learn techniques and challenging combinations that create strong muscle memory and add more flair and power to your dance.
1:30-3:00 Sword Choreo Package Int/adv workshop + 1:30-3:00 Choreography = $55 (3.5 hours)
Prerequisite: The Intermediate/Advanced Sword workshop or instructor permission.
(This option INCLUDES int/adv workshop and choreography workshop; Sword Choreography class is not available to purchase without the int/adv workshop, because we will be using techniques developed in both classes.)
Learn to blend improvisational combos and choreography with technical skill development.
All Swords, all the time. If you love your swords as much as I do…this will make your heart sing!
