Warren, James The NO BULLYING Show! Disability Awareness,
Health & Fitness- Other,
Performing Arts- Magic
In this anti-bullying show, James addresses a serious topic in a way that's fun and engaging thanks to the amazing magic and lots of audience participation. James addresses various types of bullying, and addresses the question of why kids bully. James sends a strong message that victims need to walk or run away when possible, and then report it. “Telling is not tattling” when it comes to bullying -- it's an important intervention to help oneself or another person. The show also addresses the role of peer-pressure in bullying behaviors, since often a group of kids will gang-up to abuse someone. James encourages kids not be led into becoming bullies in order to please their friends.

Participants will learn dance moves that mimick the moves of the horses, and can practice them in a simulated dressage arena. They will learn moves such as the side pass, pirouette, flying changes, piaffe and passage. The history of the art will be taught using Margeurite Henry's book: The White Stallion of Lippiza. Students will be allowed to perform a KUR using classical music at the end of the program. Dressage is the art of teaching horses to dance in harmony with themselves. It was originally developed by the Greek General Xenophon, as a means to train horses for war. Today it is performed both as an Olympic sport in the summer games and by those who wish to train their horses in the higher arts. The class will be conducted as a ballet class in a flat open area of the library. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions to be added to my live booking link.
