This is a 13-minute expository trailer for our feature-length documentary coming in 2015. For five years we trained our cameras on one arts program in one public high school with one artist teaching 125 students. The city: Worcester, Massachusetts. The school: Burncoat High School. The program: Dance.
What happens when an entire community--students, teachers, parents, city and school administrators, and businesspeople--say "The Arts Matter"? Watch the magic unfold in "From the Bottom of Their Soles: Arts, Education and Achievement in an American Public High School." In Worcester, without the arts, an education is not complete.
