Around the World introduces listeners of all ages to the stories of cultures and peoples around our planet. Students will enjoy not only the vivid stories and mythologies but will learn the why’s and histories behind the stories, the beliefs of the original storytellers. Specific cultures and countries can be brought even more to life by Stories With Claire’s creative costuming. With advanced notice, this program can be tailored to any requested culture, country, or holiday.
Both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) options are available for this program.
