A well-told story can inspire us, heal us, give us joy, make us laugh, make us cry, make us think about so many things. If we want to encourage children to read we have to begin by nurturing their love of stories, and no-one can do that better than a good, professional Storyteller.
It was through the folktales retold by Julie Pasqual that our Middle School students were transported into a world of fantasy. Julie Pasqual is a renaissance woman, full of creativity and inspiration. Julie combines her skills as a dancer, clown, and storyteller to invite the audience into the magical world of her tales from many lands. After graduating from New York City's High School of Performing Arts, she danced and sang in numerous musicals across the country and Off Broadway. She has acted in everything from Shakespeare to the work of young playwrights in NYC high schools. Along the way she learned stilt walking, clowning, American Sign Language, and how to tell stories! Her storytelling work encompasses all her skills as a performing artist, as she brings every aspect of a story to life.
