Interplay for Families
Interplay is a interactive, creative practice that unlocks social community connections. Using five modalities: storytelling, voice/sounds, movement, stillness and contact, we explore what our physical bodies and imagination will spontaneous present to us. This is done in incremental steps and easy to follow instructions to allow people of all ages to participate at their own body’s comfort with ease. COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS is what it’s all about, how to bring us as a society together to PLAY and enjoy others at the same time.
In this digital age, we need to “PRACTICE” and share with our children, how important community is to us as a whole. With INTERPLAY, we will share our stories and creative energies to allow for genuine authenticity.
INTERPLAY can be for family gatherings such as REUNIONS, BIRTHDAYS, PROMOTIONS and celebrations and or gatherings of all types.

“My grand kids love you , Ms. Kat!!! From the day you met them, they have always looked forward to the fun they would have in your classes. It’s rare that they get that excited about an adult.”

Kat recently led 4 sessions of Interplay within my classroom of young adults with significant autism. She did a great job of connecting with the students and encouraging participation. She also was willing to adjust her plan or communication style to meet the needs of the students. My students seemed to enjoy their time, and engaged with Miss Kat for upwards of an hour, which is no small task! Two students in particular really appear to be enjoy themselves, with huge smiles on their faces the ENTIRE time! Thanks for coming and spending time with us, and helping us to connect with ourselves!
