Free: The Power of Performance


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 students from a variety of backgrounds are accepted into the Destiny Arts Youth Performance Company, where they spend months creating an original production based on their 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, FREE: THE POWER OF PERFORMANCE journeys behind the curtain to spotlight the intimate stories of five teenagers whose lives are transformed by the power of collaborative dance.
