About the series:

How do neighborhoods catalyze creativity? Performing in unconventional urban settings—such as an open-air produce market, a historic train station, and city streets—each episode tells an intimate, personal story about the artists and their deep-rooted connections to community.

Over the course of the series, dancers from eight cities across the United States reclaim their space and their neighborhoods through dance: San Francisco, Detroit, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Portland, Baltimore, San Jose and Oakland.
