Storytelling Classes at Anacostia Arts Center

This class runs from Thursday May 2 through May 30 from 7-10pm and is for residents of Wards 7 and 8 ONLY.
 
We are excited to return to the Anacostia Arts Center on MAY 2 to bring Story District’s popular five-week storytelling intensive to residents of Wards 7 and 8.  In this interactive class, you’ll learn the fundamentals of good storytelling and work on a story of your own over the course of the program in preparation for a final public performance. We will take you step-by-step through the process of how to identify and talk about meaningful narrative events in your life in a way that is entertaining and inspiring to the audience. These stories are personal, heartfelt, and demand that the storyteller be honest with yourself and an audience.
Thanks to a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, this class can be offered free to residents of Wards 7 and 8. A $100 registration fee is required to hold a space in the class. Upon succesful completion of the class, this registration fee will be automatically refunded in full. We do this because it’s important that we have a group that is committed to taking the whole course.  While each individual will get something out of this process, the real magic happens within the dynamics of the group — one that is collaborative, supportive, and committed to everyone’s success. Each class builds upon the previous one and there is limited space.
