Preserving Oral Culture

Dance, Drama and Music bring Stories Alive!


Students from Cut Knife High School and Cut Knife Elementary school were invited to participate in a special day with three guest artists. Ashley Johnson (dancer), Keith Bartlet (musician), and Nicole Schafenacker (guest artist in residence, theatre) worked with students to provide skills in one area and then brought students together to do an improvisational jam of drumming, dance and story. After only 75 mins of preparation, students performed for their peers. Guest teachers joined the group as a professional development opportunity as well.
