Moving the Body, Freeing the Mind: The Art of Storytelling

Ever wonder how to capture the attention of kids at story time? Want to put some pizzazz into teaching literacy or other subjects? Have you been thinking about how you could tackle a behavior issue with grace? Then you won’t want to miss this storytelling workshop, presented by Rona Leventhal at the Brewster Ladies’ Library. In this "how-to" workshop, participants will use improvisational theatre and movement to learn a story "from the inside out" by bringing a short folktale to life. Storytelling is more than just getting up and talking - it is an art form! Learn how to grab listeners from the first word to the last image! Please come dressed in comfortable clothes for movement.

Rona Leventhal is a storyteller, interactive educator, and creative movement and drama specialist who provides performances, workshops, residencies, and keynote addresses for children, adults, families, teachers, and corporations. Her innovative programs incorporate multiple learning modalities and are customized to the specific needs of the audience.
