Bringing Stories to Life through Movement and Dance
The world is full of narratives, in stories, in songs, in how we experience our everyday lives. Alicia Quintano began telling her own stories when she was in 5th grade to her little sister in the middle of the night. Since then she has written stories and songs for performance and taught writing workshops across the country at diverse venues including colleges and universities; libraries; parks; schools; and arts festivals. Her goal as a writing teacher is to encourage students to take joy in tapping their own creativity and to share their stories with confidence when reading aloud.
Respect, empathy, willpower, honesty – all good traits that are promoted in a wide variety of original plays.
