Express Yourself is a Beverly, Massachusetts based Arts program that works primarily with youth in schools & Mental Health Programs throughout the Commonwealth. Their programs immerse young people in the arts, where they increase their skills in self-expression, and build connections and mentorships with other kids and artists. Every year Hannah Elementary School’s 5th graders participate in the program and perform in the annual Express Yourself Show at the Boch Center Wang Theater in Boston, Massachusetts.
Express Yourself serves young people from over 50 cities and towns in Massachusetts. They work with underserved youth in residential, inpatient, and outreach programs funded by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and with community youth from local schools to produce inclusive performance art. The participation of professional artists, dancers, and musicians provides the kids with a great sense of support and builds the excitement as they work towards their performance.
