    Practice is the best way to reduce the chance of injury during the live show by building performance skills and getting a sense of timing and movement preferences of one's partner. Less practice usually means having to be more conservative in one's duel -- less flashy, physical, etc.

    For dueling performers who are going in with the expectation of being less flashy and physical, I imagine they will be focusing their availability for practice/rehearsals to the final weeks where we will do much of our field work and final decisions on choreography and timing.

    It is the dueling performers who intend to be more physical and flashy in their duels and the featured duelists who I expect to make as many rehearsals as possible.

    Only a few performers have told me how conservative they intend their performance to be and therefore how many practices they will attend. Certainly I would agree that more practice has to be better than less. But, with the exception of featured duelists, without knowing how "showy" a dueling performer intends to be, I'm not sure how we could judge how often any individual or pair need practice.

    I'll be able to make this Saturday's practice albeit a little late. I'm trying to make it to as many as I am able.

    This is a broad comment that not only is relevant to Jon's post but many on this thread:

    As best I can, I have tried to identify who is partnering with whom; mainly so I can help people who are looking for partners. It would help if whenever anyone on this thread refers to their dueling partner(s) if they could name them. Also, for performers who play both Sith and Jedi characters, please indicate who is the Jedi in the partnership. Thank you!

    Be aware that for the Saturday, May 10 rehearsal the Bisons parking lot will be off limits. If this changes, I will post it here. But, for now, please plan on parking on the street if you come that day.

    I'll be there for the first two hours; my youngest is having a sleepover birthday party that I'll need to help wrangle. I will have the sample end credits with me; please see me to confirm how you are credited and your name is written. Also, I will be providing further direction on blocking and use of sight lines in the duels.

    I'll be at CCF Service Hallway today from 6 until at least 7 to answer questions. I will stay as long as needed, but not longer. I will be there for full times starting the 10th.
