Sing-along songs with easy movement get everyone involved as we travel afar and feel at home together. Wherever Carole tells story she creates community. The program is adapted to the needs of the group and its participants. Carole Forman has performed story programs around the U.S. and Canada for audiences of all ages.

Rosenberg, Paul Community Harvest Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
Your library supplies the atmosphere—cornstalks, hay bales, cider, pies and books – for the event. Homespun supplies the dance caller and musicians on fiddle, guitar, gourd and modern banjo, and tin whistle. Homespun leads participants in square, contra and circle dances brought to America from Europe and Africa. Connect with centuries-old traditions and celebrate the bounty of the harvest as generations of Americans have done. Traditional dancing helps build a sense of community. The audience has fun working together to learn the dances. Participants experience a bit of living history - they learn firsthand how people have socialized for many generations and hear anecdotes from American (and global) history that inspired the dances and music. Community dancing develops participants’ communication and listening skills, and improves physical coordination…dancing is great exercise! The “Community Harvest Dance” includes a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures. We play tunes, sing songs, and teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, penny whistle, clarinet, guitar, recorder, and more.
