Silent (Sign Language) Social Hour

**No  Social Hour on 2/19, as Library is Closed.**
Hosted by Jesse Ellis. Unlike a traditional class, Silent Social Hour is a place for people to learn the basics of American Sign Language. We will learn by doing, and grow by learning. Each week we will learn basics for conversational sign; you will build your language skills through conversing with others, asking questions about vocabulary and grammar. It is a voice-off environment; finger spelling is taught and encouraged. Jesse Ellis is fluent in sign language, tutored for 2.5 years in undergraduate school and attended Gallaudet University, a Deaf school for 3 years for her Masters degree.

These young women learn to laugh, love and thrive – on and off the stage – even when the world seems to work against them. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college. (more...)
