We choreograph stage fights for youth, teen, university, and professional productions. We also frequently run stage combat workshops from ages 12 through adult. Our emphasis is the character behind the combat-- the why that motivates each hit, parry, or attack.  

Our specialty is in western swordplay. Josephine is a certified combatant through the British Association of Stage and Screen Combat (BASSC) in Sword & Shield, Broadsword, & Swashbuckling, and through the British Academy of Dramatic Arts (BADC) in Single sword, Unarmed, Sword & Dagger, Case of Rapiers, Quarterstaff, Cagefighting, Cloak & Rapier, & German Longsword. 

She has interned with fight choreographer Jon Toppo at Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Kit Wilder at Santa Cruz Shakespeare, and trained for several years with RC-Annie, resident fight team for the RSC and The Globe Theatre. She currently studies historical fencing (HEMA) techniques for smallsword.
