Tristan und Isolde @ the Metropolitan Opera

Y’all! I’m onstage at the MET! Interestingly enough, I would never have imagined adding this to my particular list of accomplishments and certainly not goals when I first moved to NYC.

I had a lovely class of students, several of whom are now first timers with an unarmed certification under their belt. A select number were…

Give us the foils, cries UNCC

Fresh back from a three day stint in North Carolina, land that I love; staging fights for a little skit the locals call Hamlet. It was a short trip, but jam packed with fun. Arena staging, fencing masks, competition sabers, the whole kit and kaboodle. Taught some master classes to the students in movement class and shared some awesome conversation…
