Audiences love swords! Not only is the sword dramatic with a hint of danger, but is a wonderful prop that does not take up too much space in a crowded venue. You will learn spectacular ways to handle and present your sword, techniques to balance the sword quickly and securely, and more importantly, what to do once the sword is balanced: beautiful stationary movements and techniques for travelling all while balancing the sword. Sword work is not only a great way to expand your performance repertoire but is also extremely helpful with isolations and balance in your dance. Please bring a sword and a flat non-slick headband.
Skill level: All levels.
