Great News!!

Hello everyone!

I have some great news that I am dying to share with all of you!

First off-- I just found out that I will be one of the "Best of the West" Tellers for the Mesa Storytelling Festival!! I am so excited, and honored to be part of this elite groupe of tellers. I started my storytelling career at the Mesa Festival as a Youth Teller and it feels great to have been able to work myself up the ladder! I am also going to be helping with the recruiting and training of… Continue

Thoughts from a newbie

Well the National Storytelling Conference is over. Four days of learning, meeting people, and feeling a part of something huge and wonderful! And now... back to Arizona... ; )

This was the first conference Kim and I had ever been to and boy did we learn a lot!!! I learned that, well I still have a lot to learn. I still have much to create, much to recreate and much to revisit. Most importantly, learned that I really need to define myself as an artist. What IS so important about what… Continue

RhythmSoled Making it's Debut on Facebook and Myspace!

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since I've been on, but I'm looking to change that!! First thing's first, many of you know, but I have started a business, RhythmSoled, that is devoted to furthering the importance of storytelling, dance, and theatre in our schools and communities. We are also advocates for youth involvement in storytelling and the performing arts. I own this business with my friend and partner Kim Sheperd who runs the business and handles much of the booking and… Continue

Stuck in a rut- Dustin Loehr

Summer is here! The season that all students long for! Finally a break! I was looking froward to this summer for other reasons too. I was planning on really focusing on my storytelling career. I had all these plans: get my press kit together, design an artistic mission statement, get my name out there in the Mesa/Phoenix school district as an artist, getting more stories.... all these plans.

Unfortunately, plans are not the same as action it seems. Real life tends to kick in. I have… Continue

Sophie's Masterpiece

This is easily one of my favorite stories! It is a wonderfully beautiful story written by Eileen Spinelli.

This story is about a spider named Sophie who is an artist! Sophie can take the elements around her and add them into her spinnings; things such as sunshine, snow flakes, blue from the sky, and starlight, are all colors and things that find themselves into her art. All the other spiders know that one day Sophie will create a Masterpiece!

Well the day comes when Sophie… Continue

Hey! You too, I really liked the story you told at the folk and fairy tale swap! Remind me of the title... What a great way to merge two passions together. i love to tap too but I don't think I could tap and tell at the same time it's sort of like patting your head and rubbing your tummy :) keep up the great work!

Hey Tap Dance Kid;
It was so much fun being in both movement classes with you. Hope we can work together again some time. Until just let the rhythm move your sole/soul.

I love creating stories springing from other people's history. I don't do the oral history thing-just recording and editing people speaking, but I love to create the stories. There are so many directions from which you can approach a their stories. For a family celebration I'll weave traditional stories into a pretty straight forward retelling of their story. For transformational tales I'll take a person's story (which is often difficult/painful) and use traditional storytelling icons to retell it. Used this approach on a story about a woman who suffered as a child from incest and as an adult always stepped into unsafe relationships. I used dragons and bells and knights to create her story, which she now personally uses. I will also pull in history from the past or from an individual's family to celebrate the individual in a story. Feel free to drop me an email or call. I'd love to hear how the project about your friend turns out. Rivka

Hi Dustin - Don' t know when I'll be back in AZ - I was working with South Mtn. C.C. on bringing Gilgamesh there but that fell through. Will keep you posted.

hey Dustin-
I can't make it to the conference this year- I'm going to be in DC for 2 weeks in July (DC Fringe Festival) and can't swing another trip ax country that soon. I've had a good time when I've gone in the past- met some great people and learned some valuable stuff. For me, i felt like i stuck out a little, being one of the younger folks there (and I'm older than you are).

Hey Jeremy here. Tapping and Telling...what an awsome combo! Yea we'er deffinatly gonna have to trade ideas and what not. :-) Being something of an Astaire fan I have always found tap to be one of my favorite forms of dance, although I never actauly got into it myself. And then to combine the 2...geniuses. But yea...I'm begining to ramble now. Good to meet you! :-)

No I talked to her directly at a conference I was attending. She was very gracious and I often use this with adults...........I am a children's storyteller but many times I talk to adults as a speaker and it turns into a storytelling event. Keep in touch and the world is waiting for you as a storyteller.............we need many young tellers and you seem to have the confidence to do it your way.

Dear Dustin:

There is someone else transitioning from youth teller to professional teller--Jeremy Evans. He just joined this site. I recommend that you say "hi" to him. (I mentioned you briefly to him.)

Until we tell again,

Rachel Hedman
