Stage Combat Workshop with Toby Minor: Found Weapons

That could be a newspaper, a purse, a tie,... there are lots of options around. No previous experience necessary. Scene work will be adjusted to training experience. The last class will culminate in a showcase performance of fight scenes for friends and family. Ages: 12 and up. Limit 10 students.Dates: Sunday evenings from Jan 13 - Feb 3, 2013 at 7031 E. Hwy 290, just off I-35. Times: 5-7 p.m.
