Emphasis is on physical safety for the performers and audience and also emotional safety and trust of fellow performers. Activities are tailored to all ages and include a wide variety of source material from Shakespeare to Dr. Seuss.

He as a Bachelor of Science degree from Dana College and a Master of Arts degree in Dramatic Arts from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He is a certified actor/combatant with the Society of American Fight Directors with recommendations in rapier-dagger, unarmed, and broad sword.

George Bernard Shaw said “Meaningful conflict is the soul of drama.” Stage combat can be fun and exciting. It is a safe and healthy way to explore and develop skills of acting, problem solving, and conflict resolution.
