What was the title of the activity?
Fire sword duel workshop
What art form did you try?
Why did you take this workshop?
To practise for the fire sword duel I am doing for my challenge and to learn about performance and choreography.
Who taught the event, and what did you learn about the teacher?
Lizzy McEvily (Lizzy the Fire Lizard) and I learned that she is a great performer and very enthusiastic about both teaching and learning new skills herself.
Did you create any artwork? Describe it and the processes you undertook when you created it:
Yes, I created a choreographed routine using the fire sword which will form part of my final challenge video.
List some new skills or ideas you learnt:
- I learned how to choreograph a routine.
- I learned how to make it look like I was fighting without any part of the sword touching my body because that would hurt when it’s on fire.
- I learned some ways to make sure I am using the sword safely.
Did you enjoy the activity? Why?
Yes, it was lots of fun and I got to put my sword skills into action.
I also got to perform for the first time properly.
