Stage Combat & Comedy
Tumble and tussle! Campers study a variety of physical skills and techniques used on the stage, including basic stage combat, prat falls, tumbling, juggling, and fundamentals of clowning. They develop physical awareness and faculty and creatively engage with comedy to examine what makes something funny. Campers then utilize what they learn to create and perform their own sketches. Enhance your stage performance or develop skills to entertain your friends!
