Movement 515 at Capitol View Elementary

May 22, 2015

On Thursday, May 21, we had the opportunity to lead a performance workshop with 4th grade students at Capitol View Elementary! We focused on using our bodies and voices to tell our stories, and nearly 40 of these incredible young people took part in our brave share in front of the entire group! We are so proud of you, fierce poets.

Special thanks to Movement 515 members Davonte, Julio, and Linda for sharing your time and energy with the youth.
