Everyone has a right to tell their own story. As a teaching artist,Georgia helps participants from school age students, adults, seniors and community members develop their own voice through dance, poetry, and photography. As motivation for developing a piece, she guides participants to draw from their past and families to tell their stories. Her work meets Visual and Performing Arts standards, in addition to integrating other content areas of study.Students use their own poetic prose to create movement dances. Students use photography to build a story board that leads to story ballets. Over the past 5 years, She has been teaching a West African Harvest dance that tells the story of the Harvest of Rice.
