INSTRUCTOR: Mel Kovel, (Tindome Aruva). When creating fight choreography, we strive to look practiced and confident, and to transport our audience into a different universe (or a galaxy long ago and far away). But beyond looking cool, it’s important that we know exactly why we are fighting, and for what. Most importantly, how do we work with our partners to create that sense of reality? My class will focus on the wants of your character, figuring out how you got to this point (why are you fighting, instead of watching Netflix?), and the concept of the “beat” or change in the fight scene. I will be utilizing aspects of Practical Aesthetics to help us create a fully-realized world for our audience to enjoy.

As usual, Thursday’s class will also have intensive warm-up/conditioning, and there will be open choreo with show offs at the end of class.
