On Friday afternoons in January, Scot Cannon will lead a Mime, Music & Movement workshop series at the Belfast Free Library, 106 High St. The workshops are recommended for age 8 and older.

Participants will learn how some of the basic mime illusions work along with mime storytelling, stretching and stagecraft. They can sing along with Cannon’s “Baby Guitar” song and some of his food songs, including “The Cookie Song.” Participants also will get to write, record and perform an original song during the four sessions. Everyone will have a chance to show what he or she has learned in a final session presentation. Cannon encourages youngsters find “Two Things You Love” to do — the way he found mime and music.

Attendees should come ready to move, sing, laugh and learn. Comfortable clothing is a must, as rolling on the floor, leaping into the air or anything in between may occur. Scot Cannon is a talented mime, musician and dedicated educator. He has been teaching and inspiring young people for more than 40 years.

The workshops will run Jan. 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. All library programs are free and open to the public. For more information, call 338-3884, ext. 24.
