“The Stage is Yours” is a multi-media performance that incorporates hip-hop dance, spoken word, personal stories, theater and video projection. It is a culminating event that has been in the works since the beginning of the year. This performance explores the lives of eight community youth that chose dance and performance as their outlet for self-expression. They will also be performing alongside many other dancers from the hip-hop dance program at Everett. The stories range from the struggles of growing up in a low-income and gang related neighborhood to topics such as mental illness. Their personal stories will be told through video projection, dance, spoken word and monologue form. These performance styles will be intertwined into an amazing night that takes a journey through community told by the youth. As I tell my students, “The stage is yours- now own it!”
