An artist of many trades; a professional actor, singer, songwriter, poet, dancer and choreographer, she approaches creativity from an organic aesthetic. In the classroom, this begins with nurturing the voices of the students by using community building activities to create a safe space in which they can be free to experiment with creative expression, take artistic risks, and explore and share their personal connection to the material. Aimee uses theater games, performance, movement, songwriting, spoken word, creative writing and rhythm to help students find an alternate entrance into academic curriculum. She wants to empower students to use collaboration as a problem-solving tool. 


Oftentimes, students who are poor academic achievers are discovered to be brilliant artists. Aimee enjoys watching the transformation in their self-esteem when they find that they can be successful in class, and the elevation of the value of that student to the class because of his/her artistic acumen.

Residency

Theater

Use drama, song, and movement to explore a piece of literature, a history lesson, a science experiment, or a math problem. Create an original performance piece. Over the course of the residency we can use our artistic tools to explore a piece of literature, a history lesson, a science experiment, a math problem, or we can create a performance piece. If there's a particular lesson that you think could be enhanced by a dramatic, or kinesthetic experience of the material, let's create an artistic supplement to the lesson.
