Storytelling Classes

Want to learn how to tell a story and connect to people from one of the best storytellers in NYC? Magnet Theater Storytelling Instructor Adam Wade (20-time Moth Story Slam Champion, Creator of the Best Selling Audible Original, You Ought To Know Adam Wade) will teach you how to take personal experiences from your life and create stories that are universal and identifiable for an audience. You'll be blown away at how engaging and relatable your personal stories can be! Whether you're a Moth Slam Champion in the making, a writer seeking to fine-tune your narrative skills, or someone who wants the confidence and ability to get in front of people and be heard -- this class will help.

In this class, you will learn the basic elements of telling a narrative story, how to take a crowd by surprise and make them care, how to be real and truthful on stage, and how to discover and communicate the real meaning behind your experience. Classes will include verbal and written exercises and various techniques and approaches to prepare yourself for a performance of your story.

Just some of the things that you'll get out of the class: a higher level of self-confidence, at least one polished, six-to-eight-minute story -- which could be a Moth Story Slam winner, the beginning of a one-person show or personal essay, and the fundamentals needed to develop future stories.

The class concludes with a graduation performance where you will perform your personal story in front of a live, super-supportive audience!

Since 2010, Adam has helped over 3,000 students with their own stories in these Storytelling Classes at Magnet Theater.
