BGL partners with Pacific Puppetry and Ariel Rivka Dance to put on a unique online learning club starting Wednesday 9/16. From 3 to 5pm Pacific for 10 weeks, club members will build on the principles of social and emotional learning and use puppets and movements to help process this crazy time.

Back in March when the pandemic hit put on Shelter-in-Place Superheroes by partnering with some amazing people and organizations including Kris Woolen of Pacific Puppetry and the talent team at ARD. Building on that success, we’re very excited to offer this after-school club that creates a safe space for personal expression.

The 10-week program will follow this sequence:

  1. 9/16 Anything Can Be a Puppet
  2. 9/23 Breath
  3. 9/30 Focus 
  4. 10/7 Brain 
  5. 10/14 Muscle 
  6. 10/21 Movement 
  7. 10/28 Honoring the Land & Ancestors
  8. 11/4 Archetypal Language of Puppets: Voicing Puppets
  9. 11/11 Storytime with Puppets
  10.  11/18 Puppet Performance

Scholarships are available for students that qualify for free lunch. Otherwise, book a day pass to try it or subscribe to all 10 weeks and get mailed an at-home puppetry starter kit.
