Drums of Japan, Ryu Shu Taiko Japanese Dance & Martial Arts Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Dance
The traditional Japanese Folk Dances and the Martial Arts moves known as KATA, provide a glimpse into the unique YAMATO DAMISHI -SAMURAI SPIRIT-. This spirit has pervaded Japanese culture for hundreds of years and still influences the Japanese today as seen in the popularity of Samurai based Anime & Manga; as well as the countless martial arts studios-dojos- throughout the world. Accompanied by the thunder of the Taiko drums and the elegant sounds of the Koto and Shakuhachi; Karate & Kendo Kata are performed with Samurai Swords, and flying fists and feet. This is juxtaposed with the refined movements of classical Japanese dance. The influence of the martial spirit can be seen in these refined dances as well as the energetic movements of traditional local village folk dances.

Field, Barb Balloon Art! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Visual Arts- Other
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. BJ will encourage the participants to have fun while they use their own creative ideas to design unique balloon sculptures. She will show them how to prepare the balloons and a few different ways to twist them. Then they will need to think and plan ahead. This involves a little bit of painless, hands-on deliberating about dividing and fractions … how much balloon do I have left to twist how many legs??? Although some participants may want to learn how to make a standard balloon dog, BJ prefers to encourage them be creative on their own and see what they can design. We can also add on a brief BALLOON MAGIC SHOW or just perform the show with no hands-on twisting by the audience. THIS PROGRAM IS BEST SUITED FOR SECOND GRADE TO ADULTS. www.bjandcompany.com 607-432-0988

Zawaski, Gloria How to open the door to your imagination Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Middletown author Gloria Smith Zawaski has written The Undercover Kids’ Holland Adventure series. The program she introduces to students, with its creative online interactive component and accompanying short story contest, makes this a perfect addition to school programs. Gloria and her characters (as puppets), Katie, Jake and their dog Cooper are available to visit schools. The title of her presentation is “How to open the door to your imagination.” Gloria’s 40-minute presentation is lively, giving the students the opportunity to think about what their Undercover Kids’ Adventure will be all about. The program has been developed for grades 4 through 6. And the books are available for sale at your school and the author will do a book signing. It works great because the program is based on the New York State curriculum guidelines. There is a 40-page Teacher Resource Guide available for download. It is great for cross curriculum programming. According to Gloria, “Children's lives are often too programmed. The Undercover Kids have a chance to lead authentic lives...learn from their own adventures...make their own decisions.”

Crocker, Keith Propaganda of the Axis - The Other Side of WWII as Seen Through the Eyes of the Enemy History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Here is the third and perhaps best entry on my long running War & Cinema series. This time out we explore WWII as seen through the eyes of the Japanese, Italian and German perspective. We do this by looking at their propaganda; exploring newsreels, cartoons, and various other forms of "entertainment" designed to keep their public actively involved in the war effort, and of course extolling the virtues of their causes. Whether it be the "Die for your Country" cries of the Japanese, or the "inspire your nation into unity that will obey" slogan of Italian Fascism, or the xenophobic warnings of "imperialist invaders ruining the purity of race" extolled by the Germans, this program is the ultimate examination of what our enemies were thinking during WWII.

As the joys of their youth give way to the harsh realities of adulthood, they struggle to stay together. Sprawling fields of wheat, bustling train stations, rain-soaked kisses, wind-blown hair, and the rest of Petunia and Chicken's world are all created by two performers with just a hat, a scarf, and song.
