Register for StoryCamp in the spring

Make a fantastic tale your own! Write it! Perform it! Draw it!

At StoryCamp we aim to expose the witches’ dilemma, the dragon’s secret, and the origins of life-saving incantations. Come create a dramatic world charged with mystery and magic.

Dig around in the awesome Grimm tales and pull out a story to make your own. Reclaim the voices of evil Queens, curious kids and rotten parents with your own voice!


Come work with two of the best Creative Catalysts in town.  Marie-Louise Miller and Ellen Flaks  bring decades of experience helping young people “stretch their imagination muscles” beyond what they thought possible.  Marie-Louise has brought her wit and wisdom to classrooms and workshops from Sao Paulo to Hastings on Hudson.  Ellen has been teaching Creative Drama and Improv to people ages 3-103 all over the Rivertowns and beyond for over 20 years.  She will also be teaching improv the last week of SummerArts, RiverArts long running arts camp.

We’ll spend a week spinning our very own Grimm stories into whole worlds full of intrigue, magic and fun.  Storytelling can be a solo act or students can work on a story in small groups.  You choose which characters to follow, how the story evolves, and who your hero will be.  You’ll design the settings and clothes, map out the world of your story, flesh out characters and their conversations, and practice the great art of narration.

Finally, at the end of the week:

Students will present their process and their new Grimm tale to the group.
