In their presentations they use tapestries, traditional dress, jewelry and instrumentation creating a magical, authentic ambience. Balam, meaning jaguar in Maya, and coatl, meaning serpent in Nahuatl, unite to weave Mesoamerican themes into a tapestry of colorful legends, drawing each audience member into the story through participatory song and dance. Students will learn about History and Geography of Mexico and a message of respect to each other and to mother nature.

Capoeira Angola, a traditional Afro-Brazilian art form, appeals to many senses with beautiful and acrobatic movements, singing, and music, using traditional Brazilian instruments such as the Berimbau (made of a gourd and one string) and Pandeiros (tambourines). Performers will demonstrate a traditional capoeira circle called a roda and dance and sing along to the beats of the Berimbau. Students will learn about the Afro-Brazilian culture and the history of how Afro-Brazilian slaves achieved freedom through the art of Capoeira, as well as basic Capoeira rhythms and steps. The songs are call and response and audience members are encouraged to sing along.

Austin Willacy: Youth in Arts ’Til Dawn

A Cappella music is singing without instrumental accompaniment. It means "in the style of the Sistine Chapel," where services used choirs with no instruments. As time has passed, A Cappella music has broadened its subject matter and style to include all genres of music. In this day and age A Cappella is more a choice of instrumentation, or lack thereof, rather than a style of music. Youth in Arts' A Cappella ensemble `Til Dawn will perform a mix of contemporary and classic songs from the Pop, R&B, Rock, Folk, Gospel and Jazz traditions. Depending upon questions asked, students may learn about music (chords and keys) or about arranging, but the real impact of the performance is encouraging students to pursue their own goals. `Til Dawn celebrates youth voices and the value of the arts, fostering positive messages about meaningful social issues and inspiring children of all ages.

Free for students; $4 for all others.
