Performance/Slam Poetry & Creative Writing and Theater & Acting Winter/Spring 2018-2019

D.I.V.A.’s (Divine Inspired Versatile Artists) is a program designed to introduce girls (ages 10-17) to performance/slam poetry & creative writing and theater & acting. Divas will learn about different forms of poetry including Lyric Poetry, Free Verse, and Haiku, discuss and participate in slam-styled forms of expression, and learn how to emote their written works effectively for an audience. They will also engage in various role-playing activities (ex. – discuss different emotions and how to express them both broadly and subtly), perform monologues and skits, and explore improvisation.  Divas will have completed at least 2 poems, including a slam/performance piece, which they will showcase in a culminating presentation at the end of the program.

Business Is Personal: Practical Tools for Materializing Passionate Ideas.

The only way to ever finish anything is to actually start.  Doesn’t matter where you start, just as long as you start.  Talking about it is easy!  Doing it is a completely different story. That takes action!  It takes pushing through the procrastination, fear, self-judgment, doubt, the excuses and everything in between.  If you’re ready to get those passionate ideas out of your head and turn them into something tangible, then stop talking about it and start doing it!  Join us on 7/27 and turn your words into your world.
