Fencing teaches skills that will help you your whole life. Fencing is life. It's a lot of fun, too. There is no better way to share your event or your message than with a fencing workshop. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.

Birthday Parties. A fencing themed birthday part. A big hit. For up to forty kids at the Royal Arts facility. Fence and have a party.

Boy/Girl Scout Troops. We wish there was a fencing merit badge. Instead, bring your troop to Royal Arts, and we'll teach them a little fencing and a lot of fun. (Not responsible for stick sword-fights that break out in the woods at campouts after that! :) )

Schools. Teachers, enhance your classroom content with a Royal Arts workshop. We come to your class, talk about fencing and then let the kids try it. Here are some popular themes we've done in the past:

  • Romeo & Juliet

  • Hamlet

  • French classes

  • History classes

  • Three Musketeers


Please contact us for details on how to get a workshop. We can come to you, too.

Shakespeare in the Classroom

Ages: 12 - 105
"A hit, a very palpable hit."
-- Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 2

Whether you are reading Hamlet with its climactic duel, Romeo & Juliet or other literature with fencing, we offer workshops for your students that will allow them to experience the duel or be the one to slay Mercutio. This is not us acting it out ( although we could ). This is your students donning fencing gear and trying it for themselves. There is no better way to experience what is going on in the story.

We travel to schools studying the Bard, particularly Romeo & Juliet or Hamlet. Students will relive the Montague vs Capulet battle.

Don't limit yourself there. If there is another story you would like to share, let us know. We also do workshops for history classes, French classes and much more. Let us know what your ideas are in the comments below.

This workshop is limited by scheduling and distance travelled. We can accomodate multiple workshops for larger groups. Travel cost may be required.
