about Storytelling

“Storytelling is empowering for all ages. It’s challenging in a fun and personal way.” - Karen G., elementary school teacher.

Before everyone was glued to their screens, they were captivated by storytellers. In fact, a good story still has the power to move and delight. A great story can connect people across generations.

Discover the joy that comes from telling your story. Whether you’re sharing your own personal tale or retelling a classic, our storytelling classes give you the tools you need to engage your listeners. Professional storytellers Kirk Waller, Jeanne Haynes, Mary Gay Ducey, Olga Loya, and Marijo help you explore the skills needed to keep your audience engaged, from developing your characters’ voices and gestures to successfully weaving personal stories into traditional tales.

Once you’ve mastered the skill, you can join other storytellers and take your show on the road to local schools and senior centers. We have some exciting storytelling classes coming up in the fall. Jeanne Haynes will teach our Storytelling Foundations... with a Twist! class. We're also offering, for the first time, our E.P.I.C. (Exploration in Comprehensive Storytelling) Program. Click here to read more about this exciting two-year program!

Have questions or want to know more about E.P.I.C.? Contact our Director of Storytelling, Kirk Waller.

To ensure that you receive personal attention, we’ve limited class size, which means that some classes do fill. If a class you're interested in has a waitlist, we encourage you to sign up and attend the first day of class, as we often have spots open up in the first week.
