Performance

Mentors: Ms. Rogers and Mr. McDavitt

While working on your population project, have you been moved, affected, or changed by what you’ve learned?  Do you feel a need to express what you’ve learned through performance?  Do you love to perform onstage?  This is your chance to share your stories, emotions and understandings with the world!  Seize the opportunity to create your own song, dramatic monologue or dance that will educate, change and motivate your audience to take action.
