"THE Z FACTOR"

Generation Z explores the world differently than the generations that came before them. They are wired, innovative, and connected. Their sense of community is vast and virtual. But in this fast-paced world in which they are living, many great men and women that came before serve as a reminder to be strong in the face of adversity.

Gen Z pays homage through dance to the movements, leaders, ancestors, and communities that made a difference and inspire them to sustain leadership and change for all of us - The Z Factor.

"BRIDGES NOT WALLS"

Boston Globe Top Ten Editors Pick!

 

"I have asked a lot of them, to share their stories, their lives,

their fears, their hopes, and their dreams with me. I have seen all of the dancers' hard work break through, and it touches my heart in an explainable way. They bring to life the ups and downs of adolescence in a way that truly exposes the essence of what it is like to be a teen these days. The tears in their eyes and passion they put into this show is inspiring, and I thank them for the dedication and commitment to making it come to life. They are changing lives. One audience member at a time.
