Diane presents two interactive workshops for after school staff at this popular conference.
Tell Me A Story: How to Re-tell a Folktale
Learn how to tell a folktale in your words in this interactive workshop! Diane leads workshop participants in group exercises that will develop everyone’s expressive abilities. Explore your voice’s potential and learn how to create a character using Diane’s method of Voice and Body signatures. Skills learned from this workshop can be applied to storytelling and public speaking. Experience the power of story!
Storytelling and the Art of Play: Motivating children to tell their own tales
All children have a story to tell, but how can we teach them the fundamental components of a story in a lively and interactive way? By using exercises developed during Diane’s twenty years of experience in schools, linking children’s innate ability to play with storytelling techniques we’ll bring students to their fullest storytelling potential. Best results if you have taken Diane’s “Tell me A Story” workshop earlier today.
