Undaunted: Tales of Adventure and Courage
During times of crisis, stories help calm and guide us. Since the dawn of time, people in every culture have been telling stories about overcoming fear to remind us of our courage. This uplifting program offers stories that attend to social emotional needs in challenging times and are rooted in literacy. Noa invites students to listen deeply, imagine, and connect with the adventures of undaunted characters who are not discouraged by difficulty, danger, or disappointment.
"Noa is fantastic! She brings her stories alive so that this petite woman actually resembles a lion, a turtle--actually any character she takes on, when performing--without costume! I cannot say enough about Noa--the teachers, staff and most importantly the students were captivated by her storytelling."
"Noa was warm and engaging. She established immediate rapport with the audience, giving clear cues for decorum, but lots of space for appropriate response and participation. Her stories were mesmerizing, her timing impeccable, and her connection with the children genuine. Loved her!"
"I appreciated the diverse nature of the stories Noa told both at the performance and on her CD. She brought in elements of the cultures that the stories sprang from and made the stories come alive with her dramatic telling of them. Noa is truly an exceptional performer."
