Sarah Barron

Sarah has danced all of her life, her mother would say that Sarah even danced before she came into this world! We can relate stories through movement, image, sound and throught the spoken or written word, the latter being the method that is considered most significant. However  to enable children to tell stories in fullness, movement, image and sound preceding the spoken or written text  provides for a far greater ability to tell stories. Come and let yourself tell stories without speaking! This workshop is a must for all educators wishing to fully engage children in literacy.
