TAP Throwback: Sounds from a 2017-18 Seminar

Editor's Note: Even as we're full speed ahead with our TAP 2018-19 trainees, we're still reveling in the reflections of our 2017-18 participants. Over the next several weeks, we'll be sharing several blogs authored by our now-alums. These blogs are both delightful throwbacks, as well as hints about what might be ahead for this year's trainees! In spring 2018, Community-Word Project artist Sebastian Cruz co-facilitated a seminar, Teaching for English Language Learners through Dance, Movement & Music, at Carnegie Hall. The seminar was part of the TAP Cohort's Elective Seminar series. In the course of an afternoon, Cruz took language out of the equation and brought it home to the classroom aga

TAP Throwback: The Power of the Debrief

Editor's Note: Even as we're full speed ahead with our TAP 2018-19 trainees, we're still reveling in the reflections of our 2017-18 participants. Over the next several weeks, we'll be sharing several blogs authored by our now-alums. These blogs are both delightful throwbacks, as well as hints about what might be ahead for this year's trainees! In Spring 2018, I attended the second debrief of the Teaching Artist Project.

TAP Throwback: The Stories We Tell

Editor's Note: Even as we're full speed ahead with our TAP 2018-19 trainees, we're still reveling in the reflections of our 2017-18 participants. Over the next several weeks, we'll be sharing several blogs authored by our now-alums. These posts are both delightful throwbacks, as well as hints about what might be ahead for this year's trainees. Storytelling is a powerful tool. And not just for artists. The lawyer appeals to the jury’s emotions when defending their clients, historians interpret ancient sagas, mathematicians tell tales in numbers and formulas, reporters bring us events from around the world, and salesmen sell us an idea. Whether you think your job requires storytelling finesse

The ABCs of TAP: Our 2018-19 Program Begins

Whew. The first month of the 2018-19 Teaching Artist Project has gone by in the blink of an eye. The room has been full (31 trainees this year!), and the dialogue has been rich. On October 19, 2018, we hosted our Opening Night, filled with introductions, art-making, and a few heated rounds of some of our favorite board games. Then, the very next day, we dove straight into our work together. During Workshop 1, our TAP trainees got to know each other and our five phenomenal facilitators: Adriana Guzmán, Amanda Torres, Andre Ignacio Dimapilis, Karla Robinson, and TAP Director Katie Rainey. In doing so, we began to explore the role of community in teaching artistry - a theme we'll no doubt retur
