Thank you for a great week!!! Everyone who met and worked with you was very impressed. You were tremendous!
Diane Dinndorf Friebe,
High Plains Art Council

I enjoyed the authenticity of everything, drums, costumes, rhythms. Most children don’t have the opportunity to hear authentic African music.
Wake Robin Elementary School
The students were fascinated by the African textiles and costumes. The rhythm and dancing was awesome. Involving the principal and staff members tickled the students, good idea.
Cody Elementary School
The residency provided opportunities which would be impossible for the teachers to provide. Your enthusiasm was outstanding.
Holy Name School

The students learned a great deal about the variety and culture of Africa. The active nature of your program and that they go to touch, try things, and ask questions at anytime was exceptional. Thanks- your program and work with students is outstanding.
Mrs. Raiter, Bee School

This was the best fine arts residency I have experienced for students in 29 years of teaching. The best thing was how hands on it was, the students were captivated by the instruments and the dances, which they were able to experience first hand. We would give Charles our highest recommendation!
Sidney Public School
