Teaching Artist Reel - 2022

Teaching artist reel - featuring residencies at Brooklyn Center High School (Minneapolis, MN), Blue Water Theater Company (Wayzata, MN) and Moreland Arts & Health Sciences Magnet School (St. Paul, MN).

"Scott is amazing to work with! From the teacher's end he is organized, engaged, and dives all into his residencies. Working with him was a complete package from beginning to end, with pre-work planning, awesome teaching, and post-work reflections. From the students' perspective he was fun, a great dancer, and truly guided their mindset on being brave and comfortable in their own skin. He encourages self awareness, he builds confidence, and he engages them from the second they meet him." - Ashley Mossey, 2nd Grade Teacher at Moreland.
