Explore the creative force that drives New York kids to give up their summer vacations for four weeks of intensive study and training in this documentary from our friends at Mountain Lake PBS.

FOCUSED: Creative Youth in the Empire State is a special television program that follows students from audition through performance during their journey at NYSSSA. These talented teens represent the future of the arts. You’ll see their dedication, determination and drive. Some of the students come from rural areas where working with top professionals in the arts would not otherwise be an option for them.

Be inspired by their discovery and growth as artists and as young adults, and learn why this program has been a life-changing experience for more than 20,000 students.
