The 808s Youth Empowerment Through Dance

In July, 2011, four young adults, aged 19 - 22, from the North of Howard community in Rogers Park (Chicago's far north side) had an idea: to create an urban dance group directed towards area youth residing in and around the community. This video chronicles the build up and excitement generated by their program, called 808s:Youth Empowerment thru Dance, and the incredible benefits resulting from youth-led programs such as this.
