The DEA Youth Dance Programs in Los Angeles gathered on April 13th to showcase their work at Peary Middle School in Gardena, CA. Four Los Angeles schools performed eagerly for parents, family members, school administration and other DEA Youth Dancers. DEA Youth Dance Program local dance company partner, Culture Shock Los Angeles hosted the lively event and impressed the audience with performances by their youth and adult troupe. A Los Angeles DEA agent spoke passionately to the audience and educated attendees about the dangers of drugs and how the DEA helps to provide safety through their national and international efforts. The kids were enthralled and their questions for the agent were endless! It was a moving event and a day filled with dedication, talent, emotion and gratitude.

Nationally the DEA Youth Dance Program continues to grow and has now reached 20 cities nationwide. The program goal is to reach 30 cities by 2014 so that hundreds more students will turn to the healthy outlet of dance instead of drugs and negative behaviors.
