Storytelling Through Drama
In this residency, students will use their actor’s tools of body, voice and imagination to explore story, characters and emotions. They will experiment collaboratively and individually with different aspects of theater, which may include pantomime, group storytelling, character voice, character physicality, gesture and more. Over the course of the program, students will grow to better understand themselves — and others.

Storytelling Through Dance
In this movement-driven residency, students play with physical expression and the art form of dance as a way to explore story, characters and emotions. Students will experiment with elements of movement including body, space, time, energy, relationship and rhythm, both individually and as an ensemble. They’ll develop new tools for expressing themselves, and connect with the language of their own body.

For virtual sessions, participants in in-person classrooms will need access to a computer or smartboard with internet connectivity, and a webcam and microphone for the duration of their selected programming. For virtual classrooms, the teaching artist will log into your online classroom. All dates and times will be coordinated during a pre-residency planning meeting.
