ACE CATALOG DESCRIPTION:
Heroes Academy®: LARP Discovery (Originally called LARP Foundations)
Live Action Role Play (LARP) allows you to participate in an interactive narrative, similar to the “choose your own adventure” books. In this class, which is more than just games, you will learn about each aspect of LARPing: game rules, mock combat techniques, and character development. As you gamefully combine theater, martial arts, and costume/prop/stage design, you will practice critical thinking, problem-solving, and community leadership skills.
ABOUT OUR CURRICULUM:
LARP Adventure Program’s Heroes Academy® is a combination of theater, martial arts, and costume/prop/stage design. We combine these arts with critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and community leadership skills. We believe that through nurturing one another in a community arts-based environment, we can discover our personal legends and reach self-actualization.
