Stories With Claire Storytelling Workshops
Public speaking is one of the most useful skills in school and the work force, and one of the scariest. These storytelling and theater-based workshops introduce participants to speaking in front of people in a fun, carefree, and educational way. Games encourage students to feel free of self-consciousness or stage-fright and to discover the fun that storytelling and public speaking can be. Emphasized techniques and skills include: paying attention to surroundings; speaking and thinking quickly in a public situation; and encouraging imagination and storytelling skills in a public, but risk-free, setting.
