Does someone in your household carry a sword, love wearing cloaks and speak in Olde English? Check out Queen Elinor’s School of Knighthood and Chivalry which begins classes this next Monday.
The Los Angeles Drama Club is set to explore the codes of chivalry, fencing and archery, rituals and storytelling in a Monday series of classes from January 7th to March 18th designed for knights and maidens from 2nd- 9th grades.
The theory behind the class? Take the kids away from their digital distractions and television and let them learn how real lords and ladies can operate in today’s world. That includesBack in King Arthur’s Day, Merlin created a roundtable to show that no one is higher than another but each person is recognized for their strengths. At our Round Table, based on the historic tenets of Queen Elinor of Aquitaine and her Troubadours and Knights, we will practice Modern Chivalry – the Art of Compassionate Communication and Manners, from Debating to Dining, and the championing of values, such as integrity, courage, heroism, kindness, empathy, and justice. Our Lords and Ladies will be drawn away from the digital adventures that fill up so much of our 21st Century lives, and will experience real adventures, as they learn fencing and archery, and take journeys that will connect them with Nature. Our quests will be for the highest good in our lives, and to the principles of being of service to our loved ones and community.
Sign up fast – the class begins this next week.
