What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

Storytelling 101 is an intensive five-week course that will take you step-by-step through the process of how to identify and talk about meaningful narrative events in your life in a way that is entertaining and inspiring to the audience. These stories are personal, heartfelt, and demand that the storyteller be honest with yourself and an audience. Through a combination of theory and practice and a focus on tangible outcomes, you will leave this class with an understanding of narrative structure, several story ideas, and a single performance-ready story that will debut at the final performance.

The 6:1 teacher-student ratio allows for a great deal of individual attention and is a reflection of our commitment to the success of each student. Students who join the class come from varied backgrounds and have different goals and applications. Some hope to perform on a our stage, others have found storytelling useful in the work they do, and others just enjoy the creative process and the community. Our teachers are sincerely some of the best and most experienced in the nation, and have coached hundreds of people through this process of personal growth and discovery and will do the same for you.

Story District does not give refunds (full or partial) for voluntary withdrawal from the class. There are limited slots in the class so that we may give sufficient attention to each student. Because of this, we typically have to turn people away. Should you choose to withdraw, we will have a vacancy that we can no longer fill.

Students can be rescheduled to a later class.
