Joy, Magic...and Giant Puppets in Pittwire


Through Giant Puppet Dance Club, middle school students explore the joy of puppetry by performing for younger schoolmates and in community settings around Pittsburgh. Puppeteers meet weekly to practice dances, and they periodically host puppet-making  workshops. This project is funded in part by the Jane Henson Foundation.
