The Power of Dance

Never underestimate the power of dance, when the body, mind and spirit interconnect. That power can often ignite the flame of life-changing inspiration. Whether modern, jazz, ballet or tap, dance is a universal language.

She was one of the first Asian-Americans to perform contemporary dance on television in the U.S. She’s been wowing audiences for nearly three decades.

Children Changing The World (Leroy Mwasaru)

As the famous song says “Children are our future.” But many of this generation’s youth are now taking the future into their own hands.

This week on "Full Frame," meet young people who are making an impact in their own communities and changing the lives of other children half way across the globe, like Leroy Mwasaru from Nairobi. He joins Mike Walter in the Los Angeles studio to discuss his design for a Human Waste Bioreactor that’s powered by students’ own human waste. It has potential to be a huge economic, political, and environmental game changer.

Connecting The World Through Music (David Foster)

Music is one of the greatest equalizers, bringing together people from all different social and cultural backgrounds for a shared human experience that transcends all boundaries. 

Outwitting Genetics (Marianna Palka)

Illnesses can sometimes run in families. Inherited genetic mutations can increase a person’s risk of developing different diseases – from cancer to mental disorders. But now, relatively new genetic testing is changing the way these illnesses are diagnosed and treated.

Thinking Outside of the Box (Richard Curtis)

It seems solving some of the world’s biggest problems often takes novel or creative ideas so solution seekers who think “outside the box” tend to see big results. 

While some people merely dream of changing the world, for award-winning British filmmaker Richard Curtis, it’s a reality. The man behind such international hits as "Love Actually" and "Bridget Jones’s Diary," is also co-founder of the hugely successful Comic Relief and Red Nose Day fundraising events. In life, and on film, Curtis seems to perfectly capture both humor and humanity.
