The interactive qualities of the workshop made the class really exciting. It was great to be up and moving, active and creative. It gave me another strategy to use in the classroom. Easy to do, yet very power outcomes.

It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.

The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.

THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
Robin is a unique and creative artist whose leadership has helped countless students and teachers. Her experience has been invaluable and her high expectations have helped our staff in attaining not only our artistic goals but also our academic goals.

It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.

When you add movement to a poem, it makes it so much easier to understand.

Dave Young and Robin Pease came to my class and taught my classmates and me about the fundamentals about writing music and composing music.

When I had to go up and say my part, I thought I would be nervous. When I get nervous, my voice gets deep and it didn’t get deep. I wasn’t nervous and I was surprised they didn’t make me nervous. I was comfortable. They probably made me conquer my fear on getting nervous in front of people.
Jordan, a student
I really enjoyed your presentation and had a lot of fun performing. I think you're really cool!
Jacob, a student
The message was right on target - every student was engaged.

Thank you. I especially will be using the side-by-side comparison of the Great Law of Peace and the Constitution. And my students enjoy learning about the Native American symbolism present on U. S. currency.

It surprised me are how fast they got us to write a song and then got people to actually sing along and interact with everything.

"The audience joined in, singing the sequence of the water cycle. After the program, positive comments from parents exclaimed that this will give the kids a jump start on science in the upcoming school year."
