When kids have nothing to do, no good can come of it. I was reminded of that this Sunday as I watched kids, ages 10 to 18 rehearse at Boston City Lights for a hip hop dance performance.

Boston City Lights is a Performance Arts learning center for inner city kids located on Washington Street’s South End.

I watched them learn to work together as a team, rely on each other, support each other – and have great fun, but, I also learned something from them.

When a student made a dance misstep and then tried to make an excuse, the instructor gave him (and me) a real-life lesson: “Don’t be defensive if you’re wrong”

That’s the kind of lesson both kids and adults need to be reminded of.

You’ve heard of the bigger charities doing good things with inner- city kids, they have large donors and gala fund raisers, but none are more deserving than this grassroots group that works on a shoe-string budget. Help them if you can.

Check out their website at  Dancing, Singing, Acting, Sound & Film training. 1154 Washington Street, Boston.

Let me know if you’re interested in learning more. – George Warshaw
