If You Dare receives starred review in Library Journal: “…[d]elightful moments here capture the children’s excitement, growth, and productions… The film candidly portrays the staff’s realistic approach to working with parents, building kids’ self-esteem, keeping youth coming back, and countering the difficulties inherent in inner-city life. Arts teachers will gain the strength and courage to deal with the issues facing their own arts program. Highly recommended for arts and education collections that serve both parents and teachers.”
