In the second part of StoryCraft, artist mentors Elizabeth Garland and Micah Mackenzie introduce us to 15-year-old Tori Stinson. During our series of summer storytelling workshops at the Grant Center, Tori used the writing prompt “Who am I?” to examine how dance defines her as a person, how she calls on dance to help her through difficult times. Here’s an excerpt: Dance makes me calm. Dance is who I am, I am freestyle dance. Dance is my escape, it’s my escape from negative energy and bad things. Dance is my superpower. Tori kept building on her poem, writing about how dance was a constant through painful experiences. She said the StoryCraft workshops gave her the opportunity to "get the pain out of her body.” “I’ll give some friendly advice -- be yourself! You don’t have to change yourself for anybody. Be yourself, if you have pain, let it out, share it with somebody. Or what I just did, write it out on paper. It makes you feel so much better.” --Tori Stinson Click the audio above to
