Join us for this unique 4 week cross-training opportunity as we develop and explore alternative movement language for conflict. This class focuses on what it means to generate story from movement which may or may not fit within our immediate vocabulary as actor/combatants while seeking to broaden our definition of violence. Looking for a way to introduce your friends who may not be as combat-centric as you? This is the class. We will be creating an original movement piece as a byproduct of this class. All sessions taught by Neutral Chaos instructor and movement director, Jason Paul Tate.
Cost for this class is $150. If enrolled in any of our Summer weapons classes, cost is discounted to $125.
Please email email@example.com for the discount code.

Neutral Chaos Classes
All our regularly scheduled classes meet once a week for a minimum of ten weeks. At course end, you'll have completed thirty hours of training in a weapon of your choosing, including performing choreography built to highlight your newfound skillset in the context of a scene.
We are also excited to be offering a series of visiting artist master classes once monthly. Connect with us on Facebook to learn more.
Skills Proficiency Testing and Renewals
Upon completion of 30 hours of training, you are eligible to test with the Society of American Fight Directors for proficiency in that weapon. This is a great way to highlight your training on your resumé and to meet other members of the performance community at large as it means testing in front of a Fight Master within the organization.
For those of you familiar with the Skills Proficiency Test process, we also offer renewals throughout the year. If you are in need of a renewal, and it is not currently amongst the weapons being offered in a given session, please send us an email and let us see how soon we can help you out.
