Story Mime Video Series

9 Lessons/Students & Teachers Grades K-6

The Story Mime Series introduces children to the magical art of mime through classic illusions such as the invisible rope, the invisible wall, the invisible suitcase, and more. In each lesson children learn a short mimetic story – at times funny and at times touching – that they can perform for their whole family. You will even find them creating their own mime stories!

Each lesson lasts from 5-15 minutes and covers educational and social/emotional concepts such as character, setting, plot, conflict, story detail, sequence, physical comedy, cause and effect, spatial awareness, and empathy – while having fun!

Easy for teachers to facilitate in the classroom (or a child to learn at home), this series is a superb component of any visual and performing arts program.
