Young voices have a great impact on the world and they often lead the charge in changing it for the better. Dear Future is a celebration of youth voice and vision via art, song, and dance. Join us live online as we realize a greater future, together.

Created by participants in the Apollo’s High School Internship Program, Apollo Teen Takeover is produced by the Apollo Young Producers, a collective of alumni from the Apollo Theater Academy who create and develop events to connect young artists to the Apollo Theater and provide a creative space for collaboration.​
