New Workshop: Imagining Stories!

We have been having a blast with our current Running with the Pack Workshop so we wanted to let you all know that we’re going to be offering a new workshop starting Monday, March 24th, Imagining Stories! 
This workshop will teach kids the basics of a good story. In an age where TV, phones and internet are more prevalent then ever, we hope to encourage the power of a story being told using just your imagination.
We will work as a group to talk about what makes good/bad/funny/sad stories and why we like the stories we do. We will generate these ideas through theater games, movement exercises, icebreakers and improvisation. Students will keep a journal of ideas and daily stories.  The workshop will culminate with a final story that the students will have created using their ideas throughout the course of the workshop.
Name: Imagining Stories!
Time: Monday 3:20- 5:30pm
Dates: March 24th- May 19th (skipping April 14th for Spring Break)
Age: 6-8
