BUILDING YOUNG LEADERS

The Power of One: I Make a Difference!

“The Power of One: I Make a Difference” is a performance that explores the concept that each student--each individual--can have a positive impact on the people and community around them. Our Young Leaders Performing Arts Company (YLPAC) is comprised of students, ranging in grade level from 6th – 12th grades and they will perform many kinds of dances: Hip Hop, World Cultural dance, Ballroom, Lyrical, and Broadway Style dance. Each number supports the theme of making a difference, whether through the choreography, the lyrics of the music, or the bridging of culture. Each number is unique

.As part of our show, we will also introduce our ‘Promise Merced’ project to the students, and ask that they each take the following pledge: ‘I promise my community and myself, that I will give my best effort to think, speak, and act in a way that shows kindness toward Merced County”. This is a project that was developed by our BYL students, and they have a mission to reach as many people as possible with their message of hope for our community. We will hand out a list of ideas of how students can specifically help in our community.

We feel it is important to actively engage the students in the audience and we will find ways to include as many of them as possible in our show. We may use the school students to read and present the quotes. During a portion of our hip-hop dance, we will invite a few students to come forward to do hip-hop freestyle, and at the end of the show we will do a simple, fun, and engaging dance that is done as festivals all over the world. We can’t wait to share this important message with the students and families of Merced County!
