About this event
Dive into the wild and beautiful world of traditional storytelling, learning the skills necessary to tell myths, legends, fairy tales, and epics from around the world. We will plunge bodily into these stories, channeling the hag-queen, the rowdy king, and the reckless fool within us to say things we never thought we could say. Appropriate for ages 15+. No previous storytelling experience is required—come one, come all!
The class meets on four consecutive Monday evenings from July 25 to August 15. Tuition is $200–300 on a sliding scale. Send an email to Jay at LeemingJay@gmail.com to register or ask questions.
