Storytelling is my passion, puppetry is my joy, and the Dancing Bear Puppet
Theater is my stage.
The Dancing Bear Puppet Theater is an itinerant theater located in Central New York that travels throughout the
Northeastern United States and beyond performing stories of imagination and enchantment for children and adults
of all ages. It is my pleasure to share my stories and puppet theater performances with you.
The Dancing Bear Puppet Theater and Storytelling website describes the puppet theater shows I have created, the
storytelling programs I present, and the puppet making and storytelling workshops I teach. I have included photos
of the puppets and descriptions of the shows, as well as links to some of my favorite puppetry and storytelling
Welcome to the wonderful world of puppetry and storytelling. Have fun!
