This course is designed to instill in the student an appreciation for the unique art forms of stage combat and stunts, as well as to give the student the opportunity to perform different types of theatrical stunts and combat. Over the course of the session, students will learn athletic skills such as rolling, handling stage weapons, and learning how to perform combat scenes with a partner, all while keeping safety as the top priority!
Dawson is so excited to begin working with CYT Austin in their mission to bring inspiring, Christ-centered theatre to the young people in the Austin area. He credits Julie Novak for initially showing him the power of theatre and the arts, and ever since then he has committed himself to learn more about the form. Despite initially falling in love with musicals under the direction of Mrs. Novak, Dawson has since found a new love for the classic works, such as Greek theatre, Shakespeare, and Chekhov. When Dawson isn't involved in theatre, he spends his time combing the shelves at Half-Price Books, training to become a certified personal & business coach, and making digital art (including music) with his friends.
