I have performances appropriate for all age groups. I prefer to divide school performances into age groups because of attention span and comprehension level of the different age groups. I have programs appropriate for grades K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12 and college level.
All performances are medleys of Appalachian folk tales and a few songs. All performances are usually are usually 45 minutes to one hour long. College performances are one to one and a half hours long. In most cases I limit performances to 350 students My workshops are hands on. If you have many more than 30 students, it prohibits participation by all students.
I also teach a teacher’s workshop. In this workshop I teach teachers how to teach my student workshop and build upon it to teach cultural history and creative writing. Teacher workshops last one to one and a half hours and are a cost effective alternative to a residency.
