New York Jedi
If you want to learn the way of the Jedi, look no further than New York Jedi. Here a community of Star Wars enthusiast teach students the power of "the force" using lightsabers in stage combat-like classes. Classes are taught by stage combat professionals, dancers, and cosplayers who are all lightsaber experts. Obi-Wan would be proud.
Lightsaber classes cost $10 and are held every Thursday from 7PM-9PM at Ripley Grier Studios, 520 Eighth Ave. Lightsabers are provided. For more information contact [email protected].
Empire City Garrison
The Star Wars costuming organization, Empire City Garrison, is made up of volunteers and Star Wars cosplayers who take this “galaxy far, far away” business very seriously. The volunteers dress up as characters like Darth Vader and Boba Fett in order to make promotional and charitable appearances in the area. You can check out their calendar for upcoming appearances.
For more information or to request an appearance, check out their website, 501ecg.com.
Be sure to check out Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens when it hits theaters next month.
