Dramatic Art and Rhythm

Recipe Poetry Guild [ view artist bio ]

Dramatic Art and Rhythm


Dramatic Art & Rhythm demonstrates spoken word performance poetry at its finest. Learn the various writing and performing techniques and life skills that have helped "The Recipe" mold their combined 30+ years of poetic experience. This workshop is also available for a residency.


"We believe that by exemplifying excellence and teamwork as spoken word we can influence, change and encourage people by example to work together towards common goals. "


"The organization of this workshop more than met my expectations. I learned some things from the two artists that I will incorporate into my curriculum! A+! The artists were quite responsive to my students as individuals. They adjusted their program according to the needs of each class. Their workshop is pulsed and relevant."

--Teacher at Wheatley Elementary
