2016 Class Offerings
The New York Summer Sling offers a wide selection of stage combat classes for actors and fight artists. It's a fun opportunity to experiment with different weapon disciplines, work with incredible teachers and fight directors, and be a part of the national stage combat community. Example classes range from introductory lessons to historically themed weapons work, from learning how to stage a fight scene to a class designed to push you to your limit.
Class sign ups occur a week or so before the event through a digital, first-come first-serve, process based on when you registered for the Sling. We will send out an email to students with more information as the sign up period approaches.
Here is a breakdown of each workshop day. There are five periods with (typically) five classes in each period. There will be one lunch break around 1:50pm, so make sure to bring a snack if you need one. Take a look at our Questions page for answers to other common workshop questions.
