Stage Combat.  Stage combat is the theatrical representation of violence performed during the course of a live performance that focuses on safety and repetition.

This class will focus on armed and unarmed stage combat.  Students will learn to safely stage flight.  No prior experience required. (Teens and adults only please.)

We highly encourage anyone interested in auditioning for our fall production of Living Dead in Denmark to attend some of these classes.  The show is physically demanding with many choreographed fight scenes.  The auditions will require a physical portion including combat techniques.  However, if you do not plan on auditioning for the show, these are still great, fun classes.

Teaching the class will be Marius Hanford IV, local fight director who trained and worked New York City in multiple disciplines of eastern and western forms stage combat, as well as several martial arts styles (kung fu, aikido, hapkido, karate, judo, and jui jitsu).  He has also worked as a professional actor and teacher for companies such as The New York City Opera Co., The Lady Cavaliers, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and locally with Riot Act, Inc., Off Square, Teton County Library, and JHHS.

Sign up for the classes today at or show up a little early and register at the door.  If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled classes, please contact us as Marius is willing to set up some private lessons.

Credit/Debit card payment available online, cash or check payments only at the door. $1 extra will be added to per class if you pay online via card to cover credit card fees.
