It’s a WRAP!! ❤️🎬🙌🏾✊🏾
.
After 1 week of rehearsals, our youth put on a PHENOMENAL show! “The Growing Payne’s” started as a small idea last year that came to me after years of working in Youth and Development. I truly believe in the light in young people and I know that OUR stories often go untold. This script was written with the intention of sharing young people’s experiences with Bullying, Family Trials, Family Pathology, Peer pressure, and Social Injustice. The audiences were impressed and our youth truly connected to this story! We are still growing but I am inspired to take this to the next level and I can’t wait to see what happens in our Musical Theater Workshop - New York -2020 ❤️🎬🙏🏾. .

Ms. Mari & her “Baby Ballet” class in the Bronx, NY. These cuties have learned 12 ballet steps this semester, played loads of creative arts games & created their own dance 😍🤗. We couldn’t be more proud of them. Can’t wait to see them grow & expand their dance skills into other techniques. .
