Our Time is an exciting and dynamic program offered by local musical sensation, Paul Woida, and Mark Ivancic, aka Mr. I. It is designed to empower youth through song, dance, story telling and positive messaging.
As the title suggests, it is indeed our time to leave a positive footprint on the planet, to have our voices heard for a better world, to work together to make a difference for all who we come in contact with and to make kindness a priority. This program is designed to empower youth and to inspire them to take action to be positive difference makers.
Mark and Paul have enjoyed individual successes in their careers and despite the stark contrast in age and styles, they have decided to combine their talents to provide a program unlike any other. They address such issues as cyber bullying, the power in words, healthy social interactions and a host of others through original high energy music and the stories behind the songs which are all based on positive social themes. Impacting today's youth is something they are both passionate about and it is quite evident with their on stage performance.
As the title suggests, it is our time and this program is designed for student participation as well. During the presentation, Mark and Paul get the entire audience involved as well as showcasing feature performers from the student body whether they be dancers, singers or musicians. They will work with these preselected students the morning of the presentation and they will be part of the afternoon show. Mark will come to the school one month in advance to work out the details with the school contact person. Consider this as an explosive talent show with positive bullying prevention messaging.
Magic of Words is a program designed for elementary students which focuses on the impact our words have on others and the importance of positive interactions. Through story telling and song, this is a high energy presentation geared towards helping children realize the power their words and actions have towards each person they come in contact with.
