Workshops will run from 1 to 1.5 hours, and will cover topics from footwork and body mechanics; to breathing and perception; to technical swordplay fun; to partner skills and communication. Be ready to sweat a lot, think a lot, and have some big feelings! This event is intended to celebrate the contributions of the LGBT community to our arts and to create an inclusive place for everyone to learn, and students of all genders, identities, and experience levels are welcome. Tickets are priced on a sliding scale with three rate levels (accessible, standard, and generous). Pay what makes sense for you! All profits will go towards topping up the Valkyrie WMAA Community Credit Pool, which allows low-income students to train for free.
