We are all storytellers. We all live in a network of stories. There isn’t a stronger connection between people than storytelling.   - Jimmy Neil Smith

Instructor: Heather Forest

 Skill Level: All levels

In our fast-paced, media-driven world, a good story, simply told, can remind us that words are powerful, listening is important, and clear communication between people is an art. In this playful, interactive class, explore and learn to retell traditional folktales and fables using tools such as story composition and creative use of voice and gesture. Delight audiences of all ages with your imaginative retellings of well-worn tales, at once enchantingly unique and comfortingly familiar.
