Let's play more

Let's play more

Maybe it's the winter, maybe it's the recession, maybe it's recent events but I have noticed that people are taking things very seriously these days.  Since I started teaching acting I have developed a passion for working with adults.  People who have gotten bogged down in the day to day.  People who have lost their spark and creativity and who's priorities have shifted away from themselves.  I've become addicted to watching them let themselves play again.  The moment an adult lets go of right and embraces fun is truly a gift.  Usually my class sessions are eight weeks but with the winter and snow and short days I thought it would be nice to do a day workshop; a pick me up of sorts.  I am offering "Acting for Improv/Stand Up--bringing alive the characters that live inside us"  The goal of the workshop is to give a voice and body to the fun parts of us, the voices and people that come out when we let go and play!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.
