It’s a celebration of transformation! Each year, hundreds of Express Yourself youth experience the joy and satisfaction of being publicly celebrated for their unique contribution to this remarkable performance.
For all of the young people involved, the Express Yourself show reflects of a year of artistic exploration and self-discovery. Every aspect of the show — the set, the music, the dancing, the videos, the spoken words — is the result of hundreds of individual contributions from youth working in the studio, in the community, and in treatment facilities.
Being celebrated for their successes is often something new for these youth; and for the adults in their lives, the performance offers a way to see their children as important participants in an exceptional event. Hosted by the Citi Performing Arts Center – Wang Theatre, the annual show is proof that art changes lives, strengthens families, and builds community.
The show is free and open to the public. Join us, and see for yourself the remarkable energy that is unleashed when young people discover positive ways to express themselves.
