23rd - 24th July

V-PAC Casting in Harrogate will be running a two day APC Basic Unarmed Course taught by Kaitlin Howard.
This exam course allows new students the opportunity to train and take one of the Academy of Performance Combat's Basic level exams, as well as returning students to expand skills or brush up on old knowledge. You will learn the basic techniques and safety aspects needed to perform staged fights convincingly, and will explore the different styles involved for different theatrical scenarios.
Day one: you will learn the techniques and styles required before moving on to learn a choreographed fight with dialogue.
Day Two: working on your choreographed fight to produce a fight scene presentation, to demonstrate all aspects learnt. In the afternoon of this day an APC examiner will attend and assess the work of the students through a Basic Level Examination.
The techniques the students will learn have been tried and tested in performing fights for theatre and film and will stand them in good stead for use should they be called to perform such in their careers.
