Play Games. Tickle the sky.
Teaching theatre combines and rolls all of my skills into one!
I teach in-school residencies for SteppingStone Theatre and sometimes in French! I have taught create-a-play style classes based on a variety of subjects that students are studying such as the environment or biographies of well known historical figures. I teach in the Children's Theatre's acclaimed Bridges program. I teach/direct/create/perform theatre with adults with disabilities at Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. When I lived in Algeria, I developed a program for using theatre to teach English. I was hired by both the US Embassy and British Council to work with teachers in their respective training programs. I also recently taught a workshop at the Walker Art Center adapting theatre activities into Arabic, French and Berber! I have taught physical theatre workshops all over Algeria and for professional actors in Amman, Jordan.
Classes I am currently teaching:
- Fundamentals of Acting for grades 2-3 at the Children's Theatre Co. in Minneapolis
- World Premier at the Children's Theatre Co. in Minneapolis
- Creating a short play based on mythology at Southridge Elementary in near Cloquet, MN with Frank Theater
