Step it Up NYC 2017

Youth Using Art to Make Change in New York City

With all that’s going on in the world, it is helpful to look to the future for inspiration. That’s what the Step it Up NYC 2017 dance, step and service competition is all about. It showcases the young people of New York City and how they are using art to make change in their communities.

We were thrilled to help the Department of Youth and Community Development tell the stories of the 10 final teams in the competition for the second year in a row (watch the 2016 videos here). From the Bronx to Brooklyn and beyond, we joined the teams in their neighborhoods to talk to them about the service projects they were completing as part of the competition.

If you need a daily dose of positivity, look no further. These kids have all of our futures in mind.
