Join Fight Director Tim Klotz for an introductory stage combat class at Nashville Ballet. While the London-based industry expert is in Music City to set the action-packed fight scenes the Company will perform in Romeo and Juliet, you can work with him, too.

Internationally known for his work with Shakespeare’s Globe, Lyric Hammersmith, Royal Festival Hall, Haymarket Theatre Basingstoke, Comedy Theatre London, and BBC, among others, Klotz brings a cutting-edge approach to acting and fight scenes. He is a British Academy of Dramatic Combat (BADC) Certified Instructor and creates fights for theatre, ballet, opera, film, video games and television.

Tim collaborated with Nashville Ballet's Artistic Director Paul Vasterling to choreograph fight scenes for Romeo and Juliet. During the month of August, Tim will be back to help set the fight scenes with the Company Dancers for September's performances of Romeo and Juliet.

This master class gives students the opportunity to learn how actors and dancers make fights look realistic while on stage and on screen with challenging and dynamic instruction focused not only on combat, but also on the acting aspects necessary to make a stage fight successful!

For only $20, students will learn basic moves to create a lifelike fight scene and will receive an invitation to watch Klotz’s work unfold during an exclusive Romeo and Juliet rehearsal viewing on Friday, August 23, 2019 from 4-6 p.m.. No dance or stage combat experience necessary!

This master class is for ages 15 and up and space is limited. The second class will be held at 4:30-5:45 p.m. If the class is full, please join the wait list as another class may be added.

Not quite ready for combat? No problem! You can observe the class for only $5.
