I have hope. Despite the heart-wrenching, divisive talk happening every day across our country, I have to believe we are so much better. Just step into my classroom and you’ll see why.

For the last week, this friendly reminder has come to my phone numerous times to let me know that it is time to talk to another perspective #SomethingNew summer intern!
This year we have had more applicants than any summer before, and each interview has been special. It is amazing to see how many people have been touched by their time in Selma during our New Alternative program and want to come back. I appreciate each of them for answering the call and applying for the internship. It’s guaranteed to be our best summer yet!
Before there was New Expression, there was Random Acts of Theatre Company (affectionately, RATCo). The story of this program at its flagship location in Selma, Alabama, was artfully told through a documentary called I WILL DANCE. The program lives on today as New Expression and the film can now live on as a household name as online downloads of the film are NOW AVAILABLE!
You can rent or buy, and all proceeds will go to the programs of Something New.
