Michael has been performing, teaching, and presenting residencies for K-12 schools since

1977. With over 4000 assembly performances, he understands how to engage, entertain,

and educate in a way that will have your students talking about and USING the lessons

they learn from BODY TALK long after the event.


BODY TALK – Our bodies speak. Every facial expression, every gesture, every little

movement is a statement. BODY TALK teaches you how to understand what you and

other people are saying without words. Michael Trautman's forty years of studying

Movement has given him special insight into how we speak with our bodies. In BODY

TALK Michael shares his secrets through lecture and demonstration. This highly

entertaining presentation will open the eyes of students and teachers alike to the language

that we all share and can already speak without even knowing it!
