Cha the Instructor
My journey as an instructor is a direct result of my commitment to cross-disciplinary creative thinking.
I love developing enriching and engaging lesson plans around the intersections of all my artistic practices, and inviting fellow artists into new ways of thinking about their own creative processes.
I've had the pleasure of teaching at the Summer Sling Stage Combat Workshop (including the Choreographer's Track) as well as the Philadelphia Stage Combat Workshop, offering original classes like Salsa for Swordfighters, The Dramaturgy of Staged Intimacy, and If These Swords Could Talk, an embodied dramaturgy class.
I am currently working with Intimacy Directors and Coordinators as a Teaching Artist and Content/Curriculum Developer, helping to create and provide courses that are valuable to (and inclusive of) all artists. I am especially proud to be teaching the advanced students in the Level 3 Intimacy Director course.
