Review for Striding Lion Interarts Workshop NFP, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a wonderful organization that creates original interdisciplinary performance (that includes original dance, music, and theater) in the Chicago performance community and that also does many artistic residencies and workshops throughout Chicago and its suburbs. The educational work that Striding Lion does is very unique and engaging. I met Striding Lion when they did a residency at my kids' elementary school, and everyone -- teachers, parents, principal, students -- were crazy about the Striding Lion teachers' charisma, teaching abilities, and classroom management skills.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the immense creativity of the Striding Lion artists in their own performance work, and also seeing how that creativity and playfulness translates into an amazing teaching process and learning experience for children of all ages.
