I AM...when being yourself is enough
Presented by Project Moves Dance Company
April 5 - April 6, 2013
Project Moves Dance Company, Inc., the resident company of The Gold School of Dance Art in Brockton, Mass., is proud to present I AM…when being yourself is enough. A follow up to the Company’s groundbreaking hit shows…accept ME, Let it Be, One Human Race, and RETHINK, this mixed-arts, multimedia event celebrates the ever-challenging journey to self-love and self-respect. Two performances will be held at Bridgewater/Raynham High School on Friday, April 5, 2013 and Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are free to all middle and high school students, with general admission tickets available for $25.00. According to the Center for Disease Control, nearly 1 in 6 high school students has seriously considered suicide, 1 in 12 has attempted it, and every 90 minutes a teenager or young adult is successful. The mission of the Project Moves Dance Company, Inc. is to advocate a message of acceptance and tolerance through dance art, as a way of combating teen suicide. The company is dedicated to creating a platform that empowers young dance artists with the knowledge, compassion and understanding necessary to create works that address the most pressing issues of today’s youth, thus transforming the artists and their audiences. I AM…when being yourself is enough weaves a series of stories together into a fabric of vivid, rich human emotion – from the warm memories of innocence, to the devastating effects of not “fitting in”. The show will also feature 16-year-old folk singer Hayley Reardon, recently named by the Boston Globe Magazine as one of the 2012 Bostonians of the Year and national spokesperson for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
