Diavolo celebrated its 25th Anniversary at The Soraya in 2017, and has appeared on the television show America’s Got Talent.

This Is Me is a dance film exploring how the current climate of isolation has encouraged us to look within ourselves. We follow the paths of military veterans and first responders as they share what it means to be a true warrior — to be on the front lines — and fight the invisible enemy that all humanity is currently battling. At a time when most have been asked to halt and withdraw, others, like soldiers, are charging forward. This Is Me: Letters From The Front Lines captures the resilience, determination, and hope of the human spirit.

The film can be viewed on Facebook, YouTube, and its website – https://www.thesoraya.org/; https://www.diavolo.org/
