Storytelling – A Griot’s Spin

Like a spider that spins a web of beautiful silk, A Griot’s Spin focuses on spinning creative, imaginative, and productive educational services, activities,  and tales.

Our programs use traditional storytelling, dramatic oral interpretation, and writing activities to teach universal values, ethics, and identity.   The techniques promote communication skills and experiential  learning to children and teens, as well as adults.   Programs in this format serve as educational enrichment for special learning events and programs, such as Parent Teacher events, After School Programs, 21st Century Learning Centers, in-services, and Common Core Standards programs.

Many of the stories are original creations.  We combine storytelling and performance arts to encourage experiential and interactive learning.  Another aspect of the program is to encourage participants to interact and experience creating their own stories and writing them.
