A Moment In Team Cabaret
A part of the Team Cabaret experience are exercises that help each participant develop a sense of who they are, and what's important to them.

Participants shape the poem with the stuff of their own lives, and create one-of-a-kind poetic expressions that are then shared within the workshop.
At the closing cabaret performance the poems, along with photos of each team member, are on display for family and friends to share as part of the entire process of self-discovery and disclosure. These personal expressions shared are cherished by participants and facilitators alike.
