May / june

Marjie was thrilled to join a team of ASTEP Volunteer Teaching Artists in India this spring! She taught musical theatre for an arts camp at Shanti Bhavan Children's Project for 3 weeks in May and June with a team of 9 other volunteers. Shanti Bhavan is a residential school in rural India that provides education for children from India’s lowest castes who would not otherwise have adequate learning opportunities. The school supports the children in all aspects from age 4 through their college years. ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) partners with the school to provide arts education to enhance the students’ social and emotional development. Marjie had an incredible experience and cannot wait to teach with ASTEP again.
