Abstract:

In a city infamous for crime and high dropout rates, the Destiny Arts Center in Oakland, California, provides a safe place for teens to share their stories, build community, and express themselves through dance. Each year, 20 diverse students are accepted into the Destiny Arts Youth Performance Company, where they spend months creating a performance based on their dynamic lives. Under the thoughtful guidance of Destiny's artistic director, Sarah Crowell, each journey reveals how collaborative art can serve as a foundation for personal discovery, growth, resilience, and hope. Capturing the powerful grace of a performing arts company for at-risk youth, F R E E journeys behind the curtain to spotlight the intimate stories of five particular inner city teenagers whose lives are transformed by the power of collaborative dance.
