The Family Dragon Show

Fly with us across the sky to Dragonland where we’ll meet a lazy and greedy dragon who won’t share, care, or play fair with his family and friends. When he flies to a new town and threatens to eat all the food, the townspeople must work together to find a way to make him leave in peace.Wolf Trap Teaching Artists Katherine Lyons and Elias Schutzman use drama, chants, instruments, and imaginary travel as children and parents become different community helpers, playing rhythms on the tools they each use to help solve the problem. “The Dragon Show” teaches us about having empathy, respect and kindness in your family and in the world.

Goal: Through movements and chants, families will learn story elements of Setting, Character, Problem and Solution, and explore social emotional skills.
