Academie Duello’s Stage & Screen program provides actors, stunt-people and action-film enthusiasts in Vancouver with an engaging and supportive environment to build and develop their skills as stage combatants.
The program combines training with swords, polearms and other weapons with the technical aspects of film and stage production, including acting, choreography and camera work, to foster a thorough understanding of the many dimensions of portrayed violence.
Additionally, students of this program will be able to earn FDC certification. Our three stage combat programs focus specifically on the skills needed for performance and safety on stage and film.
