It started 10 years (or more) ago. My performance was Japanese Storytelling with mime, mask, music and origami. During this show, origami grabbed audience heart more than any other, so I decided to do origami for entire show -that's how my 'Origami Tales' was born.
Not only at theaters but at schools, origami was successful because kids loved it. Something is in origami. Undeniably attract Visual/Spatial learners, Kinesthetic learners, Logical/Mathematical learners and Intrapersonal Learners.
At Commack and Huntington Schools in NY; the 3rd graders saw my show and took Origami Workshop to learn about Japan, Geometry, and the Art of Paper-folding.
Right before the St Patrick's Day, I was at the Sawmill Intermediate School. My 2 days of show and workshop trained a bunch of young origami gurus. Afterwards, I made this instant origami instruction video.
Big thanks to Mrs.Walsh to help my spontaneous idea and hold my ipad video. Let's rock!
