I Am/We Are

Young Audiences of Northern California works with AXIS Dance Company, New Conservatory Theatre Center's YouthAware, and San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus to bring powerful and socially-relevant assembly performances to Bay Area middle and high schools with our "I Am/We Are" program. With timely and necessary exploration of the challenges facing teens in today's America, these three performing arts groups showcase honest and diverse perspectives through theatre, dance, and music. 

Participating Arts Organizations

AXIS Dance Company showcases contemporary dance choreography that emphasizes collaboration among people of all physical abilities. Performances promote tolerance, inclusion, and acceptance. Students leave with a broader definition of what dance can be and what a dancer looks like and are empowered with the message that anything is possible.

Alphabet Rockers Grammy-nominated Alphabet Rockers make music that makes change. Their hip hop concerts (assemblies) and workshops engage communities in conversations about diversity, skin color, gender identity and social justice. Founded in 2007, the preeminent group, led by Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd, creates brave spaces for parents, educators and children to shape a more equitable world through hip hop.

San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus’ RHYTHM (Reaching Hearts of Youth Through Hope and Music) program presents choral performances by their 18-30 member ensembles that reflects diverse voices and faces. Each performance includes choral singing, sharing of anecdotes from ensemble members with the audience, and a Q&A opportunity.  Relying heavily on the “It Gets Better” national campaign, RHYTHM unites allies in solidarity against the pervasive climate of bullying and teen violence.
