Colour Me Sad
Throughout Alicia’s past 11 years of teaching she has been interested in the many ways children express their emotions. The sudden outbursts of feeling from the very depths of their small bodies has always left Alicia quietly laughing, sympathizing and shaking her head. Her time at the University of Calgary completing a drama degree also brought to her awareness the many ways we stifle the expression of emotions from a very young age, including the well intentioned “don’t cry” or “don’t be afraid.”
In “Colour me Sad” Alicia hopes to continue her explorations of tap dance, physical comedy, movement through colour, and creating engaging material for young audiences. Mostly she wants to get audiences moving and interested in dance! Alicia first tested “Colour Me Sad” with TB Weekends: January Edition audiences early in 2019.
Everyday Icing stories allow young people to explore, imagine and make-believe as long as they possibly can. In a world where technology is on the rise, nurturing creative thought is the most powerful gift to rise along with it.
The Everyday Icing community is built on human connection, and a little magic. As the community grows, we will expand how members engage with stories to inspire our readers in new ways. We are dedicated to using technology as a launching pad to connect.
