The Educational Residency Week focuses on teaching performance literacy and storytelling using classic folk and fairy tales as the basis. Students will improve their storytelling skills through theater and drama techniques and develop an appreciation for literature, reading, and writing. They will learn techniques such as narrative mime, creative movement, voice & projection, facial expressions, and develop teamwork skills through ensemble storytelling. The final project involves writing and presenting alternate endings to a folk tale. The week also includes a variety of inspiring storytelling examples, such as narrative poems and music. This is a very popular residency!!!
