    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Stage Combat Class

Today I took a beginners Stage Combat Class on our Study Abroad trip to London with the English and Theater Department. We had two instructors who guided us through safe ways to punch, smack, strangle, and pull each other’s hair. The safe way, of course, is that you aren’t really doing it. As part of the exercises, my partner Shayna and I came up with background as to why we were fighting. We decided we were siblings fighting over petty reasons and things escalated very quickly when younger sister Shayna said she would be telling mom about my rude behavior. Everyone thought our antics were pretty funny and we were one of the only groups that didn’t end up “killing” the other during the choke hold exercise. We even added our own stage bite which wasn’t a part of the lesson! Overall, this was a really cool experience and even though the hands-on part wasn’t too much, I am still super sore today!
