The younger children would be coached to tell Animal fables (such as Panchatantra stories, Jataka tales, and Aesop's fables), Fairytales, and other kinds of Folktales.


The older children would be coached to compose and perform their own original stories and plays.  We specialise in "musical-dance storytelling-theatre."
