People have been telling stories and bringing them to life in different ways for a very long time, using tools like facial expression, changes in tone or sound of voice, music, and movement. All of these different ways help us to visualize the story by using our imagination. Creating a story is loads of fun. In my Story Soup workshop, you ll learn the pieces needed to build a story. We’ll start off with me telling a tale. After that, we will create our own story, by using the building blocks needed to shape a story. This will be a highly interactive workshop with movement, poetry, song and craft.” – Storyteller Ingrid Bohn

As an Interactive Storytelling Performance Artist, Ingrid Bohn engages audiences of all ages through story, song, dance, and poetry. Mrs. Bohn s portrayal of the characters personalities aid in understanding the beauty of all cultures. Role playing is encouraged by way of lighthearted and playful audience participation. Ingrid firmly believes interactive storytelling enriches a child s life by encouraging self-confidence/esteem, community through cooperation, and problem solving through imagination.


All are welcome at this event that was created with children from 2nd-5th grade in mind.
