New Workshop!  The Art of Telling Travel and Family Stories

Adventure on the Road

Captivate your friends and family with your stories of adventure. Life on the road can be funny, poignant, and, sometimes, downright absurd. Learn how to create fun-filled exciting stories from your anecdotes on the road to share with others in an engaging way so your loved ones can’t wait for your return just so they can hear more about your life on the road.

The Character’s Perspective – Creating Character’s with Panache!

Storytelling Workshop at the Deprecation Lands Museum

Every good story has memorable characters, characters that connect to the audience. Learn how to use your voice, posture, movement, and language to create characters that come alive for your audience.  Revive a story by learning how to tell it from a different character’s perspective.  Come and play with movement, words, and your voice as you create characters with panache!
