Story Artists-Ripple Tales

Specialty: Duo of Story Dance & Music


Ripple Tales lives as a wildly entertaining, spunky duo of dancers and musicians.  Roz Newmark and Mary Johnston-Coursey have been performing, teaching and creating for the stage since the mid-1980′s. They first began to work collaboratively in 1991 by exploring dance combined with live vocals and instrumentation. They have since incorporated storytelling and audience participation into their work.Their collaboration is constantly evolving and is richly fed by their many independent artistic pursuits in the performing and visual arts. Ripple Tales has become a vehicle for them to bring together their varied talents into a single form that is both immediate and alive; which evokes meaning on one level, and pure delight on another.
