Explore the role of drama in engaging children in learning Torah. Understand use of theater games, pantomime and rhyme. Learn about the teaching model of “Keelu,” – “as if” you were a character, understanding characters and text through the use of drama.
Vocal Release for Growth and Transformation
Powerful breathing and vocalizing techniques of the world's greatest opera singers. Every woman can use these techniques to release stress, feel revitalized, and connect emotionally and spiritually.
