Stage Combat (Minor)

The Stage Combat Minor provides extensive practice in the art form of theatrical violence. Our alumni currently perform live on professional stages across the nation and on film sets as stunt performers. As a result of successfully completing the program's requirements, students should be able to:

  • Enter into any fight movement audition with confidence.
  • Understand the differences between fighting for stage and fighting for film, and perform at an advanced level in any medium;
  • Act as a fight captain for any theatrical production.
  • Attain Skills Proficiency Certification from the British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat in three weapon skills and with the Society of American Fight Directors in eight weapons skills- which may allow them to be recognized as advanced actor combatants.
