Show Title: Beneath the Armor

Repertoire: TBA

Program Information"Our 2024 program explores the meaning of courage and how it cannot exist without the seemingly oppositional idea of "vulnerability." Brené Brown defines vulnerability as "uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure." For protection, we armor ourselves with behaviors that prevent others from seeing who we are and what we fear, all in the hopes of preventing others from judging us. Our ability to put down our armor and embrace our authentic selves, allowing others to see who we truly are, accept ourselves, and make authentic connections with others is not only courageous but also the only way we can find joy and acceptance. From confinement to revelation finding the courage to create a lane for ourselves becomes the ultimate goal."
