Get your stories to jump off the page and have a life of their own. This lively workshop will teach you the art of traditional storytelling as you learn to perform multicultural folktales. Through the use of Active Imagery techniques, you will learn how to deliver stories without the use of scripts, creating the “scene” in your audiences imagination.
Learning to be a storyteller will enhance your natural expression, widen your physical animation, sharpen your improvisational skills, and generally heighten your capacity to entertain others. Learn how to really connect with your audience, characters, and imagination while freeing your internal actor become a storyteller!
