About the Class

In this fun, live and interactive class, kids get to listen to enthralling African Folktales about animals, kings, warriors and more! As the stories are being told, participants will get to play different characters as they act out mini scenes from the tale. They'll learn interesting facts about the country, geography or history behind the story and they'll spend a few minutes discussing the important lessons they learned. This class will have the kids moving and talking as they act out scenes and eagerly wait to find out how the story ends.
