Ever wanted to explore painting, music, theatre, dance and sculpture all in the same place? Then Express Yourself is the place for you! Our various multi-arts groups and studio programs start up
September 17th and 19th, 2019.
The Express Yourself Multi-Arts groups dive into the year with process oriented visual arts exploration, where we focus on building a collaborative community and culture in creating the performance set design using a wide variety of materials.
In January, our focus shifts and the multi-arts groups work on their performance piece, incorporating music and movement for this year’s 26th annual performance at the Boch Center Wang Theatre.
We are also kicking off our dynamic Express Yourself Dance group for individuals who have high energy and are share a passion for hip hop and dance. Youth dancers collaborate with one another, professional choreographer James Runner, and guest artists including STOMP performers to create powerful and compelling pieces.
The Express Yourself Drumming Group is a year-long program exploring rhythm and sound under the guidance of Mali Master Drummer Joh Camara. This group is community oriented composed of ExYo staff and youth. Each unique individual comes into this group to create an invigorating final performance.
All of our studio groups encourage collaboration, positivity, and increased self-esteem through success oriented activities for self expression bringing fun and joy to all.
This is the time for youth that are interested to fill out an application and our staff will follow up with you.
Don’t forget, our 26th annual performance is on May 21st, 2020! Mark your calendars!
