Touring internationally, author and award-winning Storyteller Dianne de Las Casas sizzles on stage with "traditional folklore gone fun!" and "revved-up storytelling." Audiences don't just listen " they sing, clap, dance, chant, and roar with laughter.

De Las Casas adapts traditional folklore, adding fun audience participation, song, and of course, humor. A dramatic storyteller, she does not stay still! Through the use of character voices, creative movement, and animated facial expressions and gestures, she creates a world of fantasy and enchantment.

Childhood travels around the world contributed to shaping her future as a storyteller. De Las Casas lived in the Philippines, Hawaii, Spain and traveled across Europe, Asia and the United States. Her varied cultural experiences nourished her imagination, and she continues to draw on that knowledge, adding depth and richness to her tales.
