Jeannie Perez, Young Audiences of SCC, says Urgeworks is a visual performance group that was
created in 2003 by a group of Houston residents that grew up in tough inner-city neighborhoods where they
encountered drug and gang activity. She says instead of taking part in that, they decided
to dance and rap as a way to escape these situations. She said the group is very popular
in SCC and will be in schools Nov. 2-5 promoting awareness and positive solutions
to issues that plague society, using street dance, urban drama, and hip-hop music.
