Presented by Junior Players
Amplify is a new teen dance production developed to explore and showcase themes of social justice, racial equity, and the challenges marginalized communities face. 9 teen performers will be selected to create a thought-provoking, culturally relevant, and engaging arts experience through dance. As they take the stage, they invite our audience to explore contemporary issues of inequity, develop a passion for the arts, and become catalysts for social change.
Junior Players is the oldest, longest running arts programming not for profit in Dallas. Since 1955, we have provided innovative arts education for FREE to children and youth in North Texas and beyond. Through our programming, youth are transformed. Our camps and afterschool programs are targeted to arts deserts – those areas that are underfunded and underserved. There, we engage children and youth through the arts, providing them with the tools they need to navigate real life challenges confidently and competently.
*All performances will follow CDC guidelines in order to ensure the safety of all cast and crew members.
