Hoop Suite Project:

Hoop Suite integrates multiple art forms with sport; poetry, contemporary dance, hip hop, rap, violin, cello and drums. This new platform for creative expression seeks to bring out the talent of 50 teens from Inner Boston to create a production that represents their journey of self-identification and coming of age within the context of the basketball court.
The Hoop Suite Project seeks to bring unheard voices seeking positive social change to the theatergoing public, as well as inner city neighborhoods courts

The youth will intern for one year with Anna Myer and Dance to create new conversation, new community, and a new language that unites the classically trained dancer with the street dancer, the rapper with the classical musician, the rhythms of basketball with the rhythms of modern dance, the emotions of the stage and the emotions of the court.
This project culminates in 10 performances in prominent Boston stages and local basketball courts.
The 50 trained youth then co-lead workshops for 50 new recruits in the following summer to prepare for future productions.

Sponsored by Youth Link, and Anna Myer and Dancers
