Story Dancing with Risa Lenore of Jelly Jam Time
Family Area (Room 101) 1:00-2:00
Join Risa Lenore in story-dancing. In this workshop we will be exploring many aspects of one story. We will dance, story-tell and act them into being. It is a combination of improvisational performance, dance, physical theatre and storytelling. This workshop is appropriate for all ability levels, as we adventure through story, both classic and invented, with our bodies and minds. It is best suited for children 3-8 and their families.
