Video accompanying story at http://bit.ly/rY9ABe about the Caixa de Surpresa Cultural Center in Vila Aliança, a favela in Bangu, Rio de Janeiro.

Prepared by: Mary Allison Joseph

"Art is a necessity within a larger need for transformation for our favelas." - Waldemir Correa

"The objective was never to train great dancers or great actresses. It was to transform these children into people capable of being in charge of their own stories. We never had to shine as artists. The shine comes from being happy with what you're doing, whether you dance well or not." - Dayane Conceição
