CG: STAGE TUBE: R.Evolución Latina's DARE TO GO BEYOND Children's Arts Camp Finale

July 20, 2012 - by NYC News Desk

The 5th Annual “Dare to Go Beyond” Children's Performing Arts Camp, hosted by R.Evolución Latina, concluded today, July 20, with an exciting song and dance extravaganza in partnership with “Step Up Revolution,” the major dance motion picture that opens July 27, 2012 nationwide. The film, which highlights elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs with a message, aligns with R.Evolución Latina messaging and goals of empowering Hispanic youth to make a difference through the arts. Watch a video from the finale performance below!

Nearly 200 students from schools and community centers citywide convened today at the legendary Roseland Ballroom to learn choreography, rehearse, work with directors and video crews, and ultimately performed a full dance-sequence from the film for the cameras. The theme of the event was “Imagination,” consistent with the theme of the one-week educational program.

The performance was recorded outdoors, flash mob-style, at 1:15pm, in front of the Roseland, located at 239 W. 52nd Street, between Broadway and Eight Avenue. The NYPD briefly closed the street for the celebration.

R.Evolución Latina's 5th Annual “Dare to Go Beyond” Children's Performing Arts Camp is a 5-day educational program for children ages 7 to 17, made possible with support from the Herman Goldman Foundation. Nearly 30 Broadway performers and International Artists donated their time as volunteer instructors. The Camp held at Pearl Studios kicked off last Monday with a special visit and surprise performance by child actors Nia Ashleigh, Imani Dia Smith, and Judah Bellamy, who currently star in the Broadway production of The Lion King.
