Arts Discovery Educational Series presents

The Movement, an acapella musical


Monday, January 25 at 9:50am

The Movement, an acapella musical, is an original work composed by Kathy D. Harrison that tells the story of the children and teens in Alabama who stood against racial injustice in 1963 – and changed American history. Through harmonious singing, rhythmic step dance and narrative scenes, this civil rights story illuminates the courage of young Americans. This production was created by LEAP Artists Live!, a program of LEAP NYC whose mission is to provide educational arts programs to promote access and equity for NYC students underserved in the arts.

Curriculum Connections: History, Theatre Arts, Creation & Performance, Voice, Dance Movement Skills, Musical Literacy & Response, Contextual Relevancy, Aesthetics, Analysis, Culture

All school groups, including homeschools, will reserve tickets to Arts Discovery performances through Eventbrite. You may edit your reservation until the show date to allow for changes in attendance numbers or special needs.

All Durham Public Schools (DPS) reservations will be made by the school-designated Arts Liaison. The Arts Liaison was appointed by each school principal to coordinate this effort. Please contact your principal for further action. Please note: We received funding specifically for a limited number of complimentary tickets for Durham Public Schools students to attend Arts Discovery Educational Series performances. Once the complimentary ticket limit is reached, DPS will be responsible for paying $6/ticket for additional tickets.
