Event Description

How to Tell a Kick Butt 5 minute story.
Come and enjoy a 1.5 hour workshop on finding a story from your life experience with coaching and pointers on performance. Storytelling is a whole performance art unto itself.

Each workshop is one time/ free standing event and taught by professional teaching artists.

The cost is $20 for each session/workshop and, if you stay for open mic (recommended) you must purchase something ($5 minimum) at the venue.

In this workshop you will begin to learn how storytelling differs from theater, stand up and twisting balloon animals and how to mine your life experience to craft a story. Followed by an open mic opportunity to tell your story to an audience.
