“Visions of Movement” Performs at Radio City
May 27, 2022 / SCO News
Visions of Movement, a dance group of young ladies between the ages of nine and thirteen who participate in SCO’s Beacon After School Program in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, performed in Garden of Dreams’ Talent Show in April.
The Talent Show, themed “Beyond A Dream”, took place on the Great Stage in Radio City. Over 100 young people from Garden of Dreams partners performed for a crowd of over 2,500 people as they sang, danced, played musical instruments, and shared their stories alongside their talents.
Visions of Movement performed “Stand Up,” a routine that resonates with them, inspiring them to stand up through the ups and downs they may experience. They use it as motivation to “stand up” and be unmovable, because “We are all destined for greatness.”
Visions of Movement meets weekly in Brooklyn to work on their choreography. The objective of the group is to create a safe haven for young people while doing something they enjoy.
The girls sometimes struggle adapting to diverse genres of music, since some are stronger in certain genres, like hip hop, while other may excel in others, like modern. They enjoy the challenge of overcoming the diversity of their strengths by working together and pairing with a friend that may be stronger in a specific genre. They become more well-rounded dancers by learning from each other.
Through the dance group, the girls have learned the importance of working together as a team, “Teamwork is A Mindset!” They all come together with one goal, which is to execute their routine to the best of their ability while encouraging each other in the process.
“Stand Up when all else fails! Believe in yourself, and you shall succeed!”
