Invite Ellen to Your CommunityLet's start the conversation
I am so blessed to do the work that I do, and even more excited that you’re thinking about having me in your community!
Our conversation begins with you filling out this form below! As you fill it out, keep some of the below questions in mind:
What is your vision for my visit? What have you seen me do that you would like recreated at your venue? What needs does your venue have? How can I best serve your population? Will my visit include working in a secular or Jewish setting? Will I be working with children, with adults, with both? Are you only interested in my music work? Worship services? My yoga work? My health coaching programs? My text study combined with music, health coaching and yoga?
“I am a huge fan of Ellen Allard on so many levels. Firstly, her music for young people is simply the best — easy to learn, easy to sing, engaging, age and developmentally appropriate, creative, fun, and more than anything, kids love it. I use many of her songs with seniors, too, and they love it as well.
Secondly, I have participated in Ellen’s workshops for educators, and she is simply the best at pedagogy. She knows how kids respond, how they develop, and what makes them come alive — and that’s what goes into her teaching and her music.
Finally, I have profound appreciation for how she teaches basic Jewish concepts to the youngest people, how she makes holiday rituals engaging, how she makes Shabbat a holy observance.
Thank you, Ellen. I am so grateful for all the joy and creativity you have helped me share with young children, big children, and even the older population with whom I work.”
