Swords & EPIC Battles!
A course in history wrapped up in Physical Education and Swords!
Homework: Optional! But we think they'll want to practice :) Students will also be asked to research upcoming battles and bring in fun facts!
This program lasts for an entire year of new eras in history, and as with our other classes, you can sign up for 1 or more of the sessions.
What was the Battle of Troy really all about and why were those guys inside that horse?
Where does the word “marathon” come from?
Did a battalion of 300 Greek soldiers really defeat 150,000 Persian soldiers?
Let’s find out as we travel back into the past and explore the battles and stories in history. In this program, students will learn all about the history in Battle and Wars of the past while exploring stage combat with a combination of in-depth hand-to-hand and sword. Students will be invited to learn at home and bring in fun facts about the era or the assigned battle/war of that week. This program provides a safe, fun and supportive atmosphere where students will be encouraged to make bold and creative acting choices, while also developing new levels of personal confidence and ensemble skills. Emphasis will be placed on safety, physical fitness and teamwork. Students will get a healthy workout while incorporating history and acting into safe, fun combat lessons!
