Diane "Didi" DelaCroix

My first encounter with stage combat was back in Ireland with Ciaran O'Grady at the Gaiety School of Acting- the National Theatre School of Ireland. I knew I loved it but it took a few years until I could fully delve into it.

When I came to New York to attend the Conservatory at the Atlantic Acting School we had the great pleasure to work with Fight Master David Brimmer. This lead to the Society of American Fight Directors and their National Stage Combat Workshop in which I finally realized the full impact of stage combat in the artistic world.

Since September 2016 I'm attending the SITI Company Conservatory, delving deeper into the understanding of Viewpoints and Suzuki Training.

Originally I'm from Switzerland. My mother tongue is swiss-german. I'm fluent in german, english and french.
