    Re: Artsy events with kids?

    One of the most wonderful and magical and enriching forms of performance art that a child can experience is Storytelling.  By Storytelling, I am referring to a live performance by a professional Storyteller, who possesses a large and varied repertoire of traditional folk tales drawn from a variety of different cultures.  

    High quality Storytelling of this sort engages a child's imagination and helps to increase their appetite and attention span for other performing arts. Storytelling also relates to the literary arts, and supports the process of learning to read and write.  Really great Storytelling illustrates in entertaining fashion the basics of literary structure, such as plot development, and character development and diferentiation.  Best of all, kids who are enjoying a live Storyteller are so rapt and focused on the experience, that they aren't even aware of the degree to which their brains are actively working, imagining, laying down new neural pathways.  

    In an ideal world, all children would have the opportunity to experience this marvelous art!
