Kids will experience the JOY of connecting through performance! In this heart-centered workshop, participants will be introduced to Balloon Twisting, Face Painting, Ukelele, Improvisational Play and Character Development, and will experience the life-enriching gift of sharing those skills with others. No experience necessary, just a willingness to be generous of spirit and brave enough to be silly.
Facilitators: Charmaine Miron Silly of the Valley, Kelowna BC Charmaine Miron (aka Trixie the Clown & Dr. Tilly Tom-Tom) started clowning as a kid but did not graduate to a Red Nose until February, 1999. She has done thousands of hours of birthday parties, festivals and stage shows, and had the honour of clowning in hospitals and nursing homes for 12 years in Ontario. She studied Pochenko clown and was trained in “empty-pocket clowning” with Dr. Bernie Warren of Fools for Health. She was also mentored in improv by Michelle Mainwairing, comedienne extraordinaire.
Tanya Lipscomb Tanya Lipscomb, an award-winning, touring singer/song writer and mother of 3 developed a character named "Kiki the Eco Elf" in 2008. "Kiki" is bright, colourful, silly and highly enthusiastic! She has released 3 independent children's albums since 2010, performed at 100s of festivals and family events and has shared the stage/opened for Charlotte Diamond, Fred Penner, Splash n' Boots and Bobs & Lolo. It is her joy and passion to raise environmental awareness and promote sustainability as well as compassionate kindness, musical expression, creativity and joyful play. She captures audiences with up-beat music, engaging the crowd to sing along, clap, stomp and dance. Kiki involves young and old alike, with interactive games and story-telling and enthralls children (and the young at heart) with her larger than life stage presence, inspiring them to make positive, creative choices to better the world. "Kiki the Eco Elf" delivered her first performance in the Spring of 2008, and since then has performed in schools, libraries, fairs, at Children's festivals, music festivals and family events across Canada.
