Friday, April 5 & Saturday, April 6, 2013 7:30pm
Bridgewater/Raynham High School, 415 Center St., Bridgewater, MA
A follow up to the Project Moves Dance Company's groundbreaking hit shows
...accept ME, Let it Be, One Human Race, and RETHINK, this mixed-arts, multimedia
event celebrates the ever-challenging journey to self-love and self-respect.
According to the Center for Disease Control, nearly 1 in 6 high school students has
seriously considered suicide, 1 in 12 has attempted it, and every 90 minutes a teenager
or young adult is successful. These statistics are real...
I AM...when being yourself is enough is our way of joining the cause to eradicate these
statistics. Everyone deserves to know they are valuable, unique, and worthy. Everyone
deserves to celebrate who they are, just as they are.
I AM...when being yourself is enough weaves a series of stories together into a fabric of
vivid, rich human emotion -- from the warm memories of innocence, to the devastating
effects of not fitting in. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will leave the theatre with a
renewed sense of hope.
This inspiring evening will also feature 16-year-old folk singer Hayley Reardon. It's hard to
identify what's more impressive: the fact that she's already considered a seasoned folk artist or that she's a national spokesperson for PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center. Hayley was recently featured in the Boston Globe Magazine as one of 2012 Bostonians of the Year.

RETHINK: to consider something such as an idea, plan, or system again in order to change it.
Bridgewater/Raynham High School, 415 Center Street, Bridgewater, MA
Through their art the change generation as Project Moves likes to call itself tips our preconceived notions of life, love, acceptance and dance on its head. When we separate the human family by borders, class, race, religion, abilities and sexual orientation we fracture the entire global community. When we value and respect the uniqueness each individual brings to the table of life we can live in harmony as one human family.

ABC's Dancing with the Stars
Nov. 15, 2011 8pm ABC TV
For its third and final AT&T Spotlight Performance of the season Dancing with the Stars has chosen to highlight 4 boys hailing from The Gold School in Brockton, Massachusetts. Kyle Scanlan, David Guzman, Jacob Guzman and Matt Gilmore. All these teen dancers participate in the school's Project Moves "accept ME, for who I am" campaign.
The dancers' goal is to bring awareness to the bullying epidemic that plagues so many schools across the country. Growing up as male dancers the boys have been the target of bullying themselves. Each with their own unique story, the boys have learned to triumph over adversity by relying on each other and their common love of dance. The Gold School serves as a safe haven and a place for the boys to be themselves while living without the fear of being harassed.
The Gold School has produced amazing male dancers, including Kenny Wormald. Kenny serves as a role model to the boys, sharing his own experiences of bullying, but also demonstrating the success that is possible for a male dancer.
Kyle, David, Jacob and Matt are assets to their community, incredible dancers and living proof that there is nothing wrong with following your dream no matter what others may think.

Inspired by the work of Kevin Epling, who lost his son Matt to bullycide in 2002, Accept ME had its Boston Premier April 1 & 2, 2011 to full houses and standing ovations both evenings.
Rennie Gold, and the dancers of Project Moves join forces to create an umbrella that shields, protects and gives voice to all those wounded by the bullying epidemic. This mixed art, multimedia event presented by teen dancers that have been on both sides of the issue share their own stories as well as those who have been victims of Bullycide.
With tales of tragedy and triumph, Accept ME shares the joy of first friendships to the pain of isolation to the satisfaction of self-acceptance. You will laugh, cry and leave the theatre celebrating the uniqueness of every human being.

Brockton, MA, dancers are moving to create a better world for kids like themselves- they're speaking out against bullying. Each spring, the dance school's performance company, Project MOVES, produces a concert to benefit an important cause. At 8 pm on April 1 and 2 at Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School, they'll be performing to bring awareness to the current bullying epidemic, a subject that hits close to home for many of the dancers and their choreographers. "I was bullied as a kid. If I can help just one child, it's worth it," says The Gold School's artistic director Rennie Gold.â€¨â€¨Accept ME..., featuring dancers age 6 to 18, uses dance, spoken word, and visual media to promote tolerance and acceptance, and open anti-bulliying conversation. The show touches a broad range of human experiences, from the fond memories of a first friendship in "Friends" to the harsh reality of the effects of bullying in "Bully." ¨Proceeds from Accept ME... will go toward donations to The Trevor Project and PACERS National Center for Bullying Prevention as well as awarding a scholarship to the Matt Epling Creative Arts Competition.
