ReCharge: Writing & Performance Workshop:
Students will leave this workshop energized and inspired. They will really stretch their talents in this informative and interactive session. An "Art of Yoga" Studio instructor will be on hand, showing our young poetshow taking care of yourself can create a ripple effect of positivity in their minds and bodies. Through some fun yoga exercises, attendees are introduced to self-care tools that will also be utilized to inspire new poems. Spoken word artist, Ryan J, will also be joining us in this exciting session. He reminds us that what may seem like a time for despair is actually an opportunity to rejoice, using the poetic form, "a bop," in his refreshing and discussion-oriented workshop. We will discuss voice, presentation, and writing to clearly express an idea. Students will be challenged to step outside of their everyday use of language.
