    Storytelling isn’t just learning some words and reciting them in the correct order; it isn’t just public speaking or lecturing or acting. It’s MAGIC! Each storyteller must develop his/her own personal style and perspective in order to discover the joy of storytelling!

    In this highly interactive webinar, we’ll explore how to create three-dimensional characters, bring action to vivid life and reconstruct the story using the Storyteller’s Toolbox: Imagination, Voice, Body Language and Sound effects.

    BOBBY NORFOLK; An internationally known story performer and teaching artist, this three-time Emmy Award winner, multiple Parents Choice Gold and Silver Award winner, and a National Storytelling Network Oracle Award recipient is one of the most popular and dynamic story-educators in America today!

    The faculty of the University of Missouri-St. Louis and The Board of Curators voted to confer upon Bobby Norfolk the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters Honoris Causa.

    SHERRY NORFOLK; an award-winning storyteller, author and teaching artist, performs and presents nationally and internationally. As a performing artist, she is a dynamic storyteller, telling well-crafted and age-appropriate folktales from around the world.

    Sherry is co-editor with Lyn Ford of Storytelling Strategies for Reaching and Teaching Children with Special Needs, and with Jane Stenson of The Storytelling Classroom series (four books that explore rigorous, standards-based storytelling strategies for learning across the curriculum). As a Kennedy Center National Teaching Artist, Wolf Trap Teaching Artist and Young Audiences Teaching Artist, Sherry is a recognised leader in arts integration.
