Dancing in Detention
In the Girls’ Wing of Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles, CA, recreation time in the cafeteria leads some girls to dance to the rhythm created by other girls drumming on the lunch tables. There are 113 girls in the facility, many of them being gang members. Girls at the Bluett School in St. Louis, Missouri take after school dance classes as part of their program. Kids are sent to Bluett School after being kicked out of school for fighting, drugs, bad behavior, suspension, and other reasons, in order to avoid court.
