Angela uses creative movement and drama to engage children of all ages. Each residency is unique in its diversification applied to the age of the child, theme of the classroom, and
curriculum of the school.
Angela supplies various props such as scarves, ribbon sticks, large balls, and stretch bands to help foster teamwork and the concept of personal space. Each residency is tailored to the
individual class or school. Here spontaneity and various forms of expression and emotions are explored.

Residences can culminate in a performance, costumes can be provided by the artist for a small additional charge.
