First Stage Education Director Julia Magnasco likes to get down to business. Within moments of taking the stage at the 9th Annual Before School Workshop, Magnasco had 350 teachers out of their seats, attempting to express their emotions in an outward physical way. She was illustrating a point: "The number one rule in making creative drama work in your classroom is that you can’t ask your students to do something that you’re not willing to do. So stand up! Try it!" urged Magnasco.
